Background

NHS England has agreed to fund only as part of a patient access scheme. Routine funding of dry powder inhalers is agreed only if the cost to commissioners is the same or less than the cost of the equivalent nebules.
As the known discount on dry powder inhalers is applied only if supplied via hospital or home delivery, GP shared care prescribing of dry powder inhalers is not supported at this time.
