Personally Administered Items (PAI) are the drugs and devices the practice purchase and then give to patients in-practice. The practice can then claim back the 'NHS Basic Price' for the item, along with a 'Dispensing Fee'. The income appears within Open Exeter as a 'Prescribing Drugs' payment.
PAIs are identified in the Drug Tariff and also the 'Dictionary of Medicines and Devices'. We have created a list of all the PAIs from the DM+D, and it is available below. Note: the data is from the DM+D database and we cannot take responsibility for its accuracy. Also, the DM+D data is updated weekly and so may have changed since this list was created.
