Frequently asked questions

What is a C+D Data licence?

The C+D Data licence allows you to use C+D data within your PMR System. C+D Data continually works to maintain pharmacy product details from over 1,200 manufacturers who have registered over 100,000 products within our database. We partner with and supply relevant product data to all five PMR system suppliers in the UK:

CompanyPMR System
McLernon ComputersMPS Dispensing
EMIS HealthProscript
Cegedim RxPharmacy Manager or Nexphase
Positive SolutionsAnalyst PMR
Clanwilliam HealthRx Web

C+D Data, which includes product PIP codes, is then integrated into your pharmacy's PMR system which facilitates electronic ordering, product scanning, viewing of product information and third-party system integration.

Who owns C+D Data?

C+D Data is jointly owned by C+D and the National Pharmacy Association.

Do I need to pay?

Yes, you are required to hold a valid C+D Data license if you are dispensing and using C+D Data (which includes the use of PIP codes)

I don’t use it/I’ve already paid my system supplier

All pharmacies who order products use C+D Data. Please note that any payments made to your PMR system supplier are totally separate and you are still required to purchase a C+D pharmacy subscription, which contains the C+D Data license, so you can use our pharmacy product data in your PMR system.
