Can appointment cards be provided as a material or item for patient support?
Pharmaceutical companies cannot provide appointment cards or other general items of stationery.
Appointment cards do not appear to be in line with the examples of items for patient support set out in the supplementary information to Clause 19.2. However, it might be possible to provide an appointment card where, to complete a treatment course, the patient will need more than one visit. This is more likely to be acceptable if other materials for patient support are provided, which are to be passed on to patients, the details of which must be appropriately documented and certified in advance as required by Clause 8.3.
