Are out of hours GP services included within the scope of FMD?

Yes. The Dept of Health & Social Care agreed in July 2016 that all GP surgeries, practices and health centres are considered healthcare institutions so within the scope of FMD. Out of Hours GP providers are deemed to be a Healthcare Institution and under the FMD requirements they will need to decommission the stock themselves – although they could that at any time the stock was in their possession.
