A personally administered item is a prescription item prescribed and administered by a member of the practice team.

The items you can claim as personally administered are:

  • anaesthetics 
  • injections 
  • Intrauterine device (IUD)
  • contraceptive caps and diaphragms 
  • pessaries listed as appliances 
  • skin adhesives listed in the Drug Tariff
  • sutures and skin closure strips listed in the Drug Tariff 
  • diagnostic reagents such as dick tests, schick tests and tuberculin tests.

Vaccines, including oral vaccines, can also be claimed as personally administered. There are some exceptions to this.

Use the dictionary of medicines and devices (dm+d) to check if an item is allowed as personally administered.
