Terms and conditions of the Pay-for-Responder scheme

For all new NHS and private patients

  • Treatment must be within the MS spasticity licensed indication and must be initiated by a specialist in secondary care
  • The terms of this scheme are kept confidential and not disclosed to any third party
  • The relevant Sativex Pay-for-Responder scheme order form must be completed for each patient and returned prior to initiation of their treatment

For NHS patients

  • Continued funding for responder patients must be formally agreed at a local level before treatment starts

For private patients

  • Before treatment is initiated the patient must understand they will be responsible for:
    • the dispensing costs of the initial pack supplied by Bayer
    • the medicine and fulfilment costs of their ongoing treatment (should they respond to Sativex)

The scheme shall continue until terminated by Bayer on three months’ written notice. (Please note that Bayer may terminate the scheme on immediate or on such other earlier written notice as it may require for the purpose of compliance with applicable law, regulation or industry codes of practice).
