Letter to Dispensing Appliance Contractors (DACs)

This letter was sent to all Dispensing Applicance Contractors (DACs) due to the demand in issuing retrospective prescriptions.

On occasions DACs may supply appliances direct to the patient BEFORE the prescriber has issued a prescription. This arrangement is a breach of terms of service by appliance contractors.  This may lead to medico-legal issues when GP practices receive retrospective prescription requests from appliance contractors and anecdotally it has led to excessive supplies of appliances being issued to patients on a ‘standing order’ basis.
