Changes to the 'Local anaesthetics' and 'Prescription only medicines' annotations for chiropodists / podiatrists

The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) are changing the way that the ‘Local anaesthetics’ (LA) and ‘Prescription only medicines’ (POM) annotations for chiropodists / podiatrists appear on the HCPC register.
 
  • ‘Local anaesthetics’ will become ‘Prescription only medicines – administration’
  • ‘Prescription only medicines’ will become ‘Prescription only medicines – sale / supply’
 
There is no change to the medicines that are included in these exemption lists. 

Further information on the supply of medicines to chiropodists / podiatrists and their patients can be found in our quick reference guide.
