​​Extension of validity of Schedule V cards and related entitlement documents

Extension of validity of Schedule V cards and related entitlement documents shall remain in effect as of 23rd November 2020 for a further 6 months due to the current COVID-19 outbreak in Malta.

Dispensing will hence be allowed on expired documents for a further period of six months. Patients do not need to visit Consultants or POYC offices for renewal.

The direction above does not apply however to requests for new or change in treatment.

Applications for new or change in treatment can only be processed if submitted:

• Electronically via email address to schedulev.poyc@gov.mt

• For patients in Gozo to schedulevgozo.poyc@gov.mt

• Consultants are encouraged to apply through the online application system CARE

• Requests for Exceptional Medicinal Treatment are to be sent electronically to dpa.health@gov.mt. No hard copies will be accepted.

No scanned applications received via email from patients or pharmacists will be accepted, only from physicians. This is to reduce the possibility of abuse with additions being made after the consultant signs. Such changes may not be visible via scanning and neither community nor Government pharmacists would be able to assess the validity of the application. All hard copy applications that had already been issued are still being accepted by MAS offices. We have procedures in place to limit physical contact. Clients / patients who visit the offices may wish to leave their application/s and any related documents in the letter box or preferably send them by post.

For any further queries or Customer Care service kindly call on 21232424 or 22481800 or send us an email on info.poyc@gov.mt.

Benign Prostatic Enlargement Form Update

The application for Benign Prostatic Enlargement application form has been updated and can be found here DH^81^Annex.pdf​

The updated form can be filled by Consultants, Resident Specialists, Primary Health Care Physicians, or private GP’s. The form can be filled online and sent as attachment to customercare.mdh@gov.mt for vetting by a Consultant Urologist. The completed form can also be submitted by hand to Customer Care at MDH, however due to the current pandemic situation it is highly recommended that the completed forms are sent via email. 

After vetting by Consultant Urologist, the application form is sent to POYC Schedule V offices for processing. Once the application is approved, a Schedule V is issued and sent to the patient by post.

Patients who are currently on doxazosin 2mg tablets and/or finasteride 5mg tablets may be switched to Alfuzosin 10mg prolonged release and/or Dutasteride 0.5mg tablets.

ePrescription MicroMedex launch 

Another step towards patient safety.

As from today the POYC online prescriptions system will start to alert doctors and pharmacists regarding any possible interactions between medicines being prescribed to patients.

This will significantly reduce risks for patients. To date some 600,000 prescriptions have been prepared using this system and doctors both public and private are very much encouraged to use it when prescribing POYC medicines.

POYC wishes to thank all the many stakeholders involved in making this very important project for patient’s safety a reality!!
