"Specials"

In the UK a “Special” is an unlicensed medicine prescribed to meet the individual clinical need of a patient when a suitable licensed medicine is not available. “Specials” account for approximately 1% of all prescriptions in the UK, but account for more than 75,000 different formulations.

Special prescriptions are dealt with in exactly the same way as any other prescription, except that the pharmacist dispensing the drug will have to take steps to fulfil the prescription in a different way. This can be either by formulating it themselves or, as most often happens, by contacting a pharmaceutical Specials manufacturer to make up the prescription.

If you wish to be authorised as a Specials Manufacturers then you will need to be licensed, regulated and inspected by the Medicines and Health Regulatory Authority (MHRA) and must also comply with the principles of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) adopted by the EU Commission.

At The Canna Consultants our expertise, knowledge and experience means that we can assist with all aspects of acquiring and maintaining your “Specials” licence.
