GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER PPD CODE

This is the NHS Prescription Services code to identify a GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER.

The DOCTOR INDEX NUMBER is passed to the NHS Prescription Services, which adds a leading character and a check digit to create the GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER PPD CODENHS Prescription Services use this for the issue of prescription pads etc.

For England and Wales, in addition to a GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER PPD CODE, a GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER may have one or more spurious GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER Code(s). These are allocated if a GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER works in additional General Medical Practitioner Practice. The spurious GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER Codes are not derived from the DOCTOR INDEX NUMBER, but do follow the same format as the GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER PPD CODE, and are allocated by the NHS Prescription Services. All spurious GENERAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER Codes begin with either 'G6' or 'G7'.
