6. Selective List Scheme (SLS)

Some drugs are restricted to prescribing in certain circumstances under the NHS and a list can be found under Part XVIIIA of the Drug Tariff. The prescriber must endorse any prescription with 'SLS' if the patient and purpose complies with that specified in the list. An example of such is where specific patient criteria are set. The drugs affected are highlighted throughout the formulary and the explanatory notes provide further guidance.

Where prescribing falls outside of the regulations, the drug may not be prescribed on the NHS.

Doctors within secondary care are asked not to request GPs to prescribe outside of the controls imposed by 'SLS'.
