3 Introduction This document incorporates the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) documents provided by the Department of Health Healthy Start Team (2009) and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (2008) guidance for Improving the nutrition of pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and children in low income households. It provides answers to the most frequently asked questions regarding the procedures for supplying Healthy Start vitamin supplements. Ordering 1.) How can the vitamins be ordered? Your Supplies Department may order both the women s and children s vitamins can be ordered through NHS Supply Chain via the website To enable them to do this you must complete the order using the normal stock request forms. 2.) Where will the vitamins be delivered to? NHS Supply Chain s published price per bottle is based on the costs of delivering to NHS premises only. The number of individual premises within each PCT that it will deliver to will depend on that PCT s agreement with NHS Supply Chain, and its geographical layout. NHS Supply Chain may be prepared to deliver to non NHS premises by special arrangement, but if so the cost per bottle is likely to be considerably higher. DH cannot reimburse PCTs for any additional costs associated with delivery to non NHS premises. PCTs are required to arrange distribution to all partners. 3.) What are the ordering codes? - Expenditure code: Product code for the women s tablets: ABX Product code for the children s drops: ABX Income code: ) What are the accounting procedures? The supplements are ordered from NHS Supply chain using the stock order book. You will require the expenditure code (71540), budget code, site code and product code (ABX073 or ABX072). The completed form should be posted to Healthy Start, Supplies Department, NHS Ealing, 1 Armstrong Way, Southall, UB1 4SA. The supplements will be delivered to your site within 5 working days. They should be checked against the order form and the delivery note. They should be also check for damage and use by date. Any stock that is damaged or has a short use by date should be returned. Monies received from the sale of supplements should be banked at the end of the week. A separate bank book for the Healthy Start supplements will be provided. Healthy start monies should not be banked using same bank book as for other income. By the 5 th of the month the Bank Receipt for monies deposited in the previous month and Form B (monthly summary sheet) should be sent to Healthy Start Coordinator, Public Health Department, NHS Ealing, 1 Armstrong Way, Southall, UB1 4SA.

4 5.) Once ordered how long will they take to arrive? They shouldn t take longer than 5 working days to be delivered and so small, frequent orders can be made where PCTs are concerned about whether supplements will be used or where storage is an issue. 6.) Is there a minimum order quantity? The women s tablets come in vacuum packs of 6, and the children s drops in vacuum packs of 12. You can order less but we do not recommend it. Please note that NHS Supply Chain will charge a slightly higher price if less than 12 bottles of children s drops are ordered but DH will only reimburse at the standard price. The price for the women s tablets is the same however many bottles are ordered. 7.) What is the shelf life of the vitamins? From the date of manufacture, for the children s drops it is 10 months and for the women s tablets it is 24 months. Each bottle expires at the end of the month given in the expiry date. NHS Supply Chain is required to ensure that all stock delivered to PCTs has at least 3 months remaining before its expiry date. To reduce the risk of wastage, we would recommend that you do not order more bottles than you believe you can use within 3 months where demand is low, small but frequent orders are a good idea to ensure good stock turnover. 8.) Who can order the vitamins? In Ealing, the Supplies Officer is responsible for centrally ordering stock and ensuring they are distributed within PCT. Distribution 9.) How does the scheme work? Families who qualify for Healthy Start get vouchers to spend on milk, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables and infant formula milk, and vouchers for Healthy Start children vitamin drops and women s supplements. 10.) Who qualifies for Healthy Start vouchers? Healthy Start is open to pregnant women and families with children under the age of four who are on: Income Support Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance Child Tax Credit (but not Working Tax Credit unless their family is receiving Working All pregnant women under the age of 18 also qualify, whether or not they are on benefits. Tax Credit run-on only*) with an income of 16,190 a year or less (2010/2011) *Working Tax Credit run-on is the Working Tax Credit received in the 4 weeks immediately after stopping working for 16 hours or more per week Anyone who thinks they are eligible should apply. 11.) How many vouchers do families get? Pregnant women and parents/carers of children aged over one and less than four years old will receive one voucher per week, worth 3.10, for each child/pregnancy. Parents/carers of children under one year old will receive two vouchers, worth a total of 6.20, for each child under one year old. If a baby is born early, the parents/carers will receive the two vouchers until one year from the expected due date. FAQ Healthy Start Vitamins Page 3 of 10

5 12.) Where can I find the application form for Healthy Start? In the leaflet, A healthy start for mothers and babies, WIS information racks will have stocks, or you can get them by calling the Health professionals order line on or using the Textphone on and quoting reference HS01; alternatively you can order them from this site by clicking on the link below. 13.) Who should complete the form? Pregnant women or families who qualify are responsible for filling in most of the form. Your job is to fill in Part B of the form (a short health professional's confirmation statement). Your role is to advise women and families about Healthy Start and encourage anyone who might be eligible to apply for the scheme. Make sure they know where to get an application form and how to fill it in. You will also need to sign Part B of the form, confirming that the woman is pregnant and/or the names and ages of her children. Please ensure that you complete every section in Part B, including the EDD if your client is pregnant. Incomplete forms will be returned to the applicant. It's also important to talk to women about healthy eating during and after pregnancy, and explain how this can benefit them and their babies. You should aim to provide information about nutrition, breastfeeding, weaning and take the opportunity to discuss issues like giving up smoking and alcohol consumption. Health professionals should: Give appropriate health and lifestyle advice, including diet in pregnancy, breastfeeding, stopping smoking, and the roles of milk, fresh fruit, vegetables and vitamins in the diet. Ask pregnant women and parents/carers of children under the age of four if they know about Healthy Start and suggest they check to see if they are eligible. Give potential applicants the leaflet A healthy start for mothers and babies - or else advise them to get it from their clinic or by phoning and asking for this leaflet, code HS01. Get applicants to bring the application form to you, so that you can fill in and sign Part B confirming the EDD or child/children's date(s) of birth. Return the form to the applicant who will complete Part A and post it to us. Health professionals do NOT need to: Check whether applicants are receiving the right benefits to get Healthy Start. Fill in the applicant's details in Part A of the form or check that they are correct. The applicant should call for help with the form if required. Inform the Department of Health that someone is making a claim. Inform the Department of Health or any other government department of any subsequent change in the applicant's circumstances. Sort out any problems applicants may have with their claim, or with a government department. 14.) How quickly will applicants get their Healthy Start vouchers? Applicants should receiver the vouchers within two weeks of their application being approved, and then once every four weeks. If the applicant stops getting benefits or their circumstances change, they must inform Healthy Start. If they change their address they should notify the Inland Revenue, their local benefits office and Healthy Start. FAQ Healthy Start Vitamins Page 4 of 10

6 15.) What kind of advice do I need to provide? The Department of Health has produced a leaflet for health professionals about Healthy Start. It includes advice on: keeping healthy during pregnancy breastfeeding bottle feeding weaning a healthy diet for young children 16.) Will Healthy Start mean a lot of extra administration for me? No. All you need to do is fill in and sign Part B of the form. Your centre s administrator or receptionist can give out the supplements in exchange for money or vouchers and record the transaction. Other tasks include banking monies received weekly and once a month sending the bank receipts and monthly summaries to your Healthy Start Coordinator at your PCT. 17.) Will materials be available in other languages? Welfare Food Scheme materials have, historically, only been made available in English. For Healthy Start, however, we have produced simple, bilingual leaflets and posters in English and Urdu, Bengali and Somali, in response to requests from health professionals. These can be downloaded or ordered from the 'Order and download resources' page. 18.) What is the lifespan of vouchers? Vouchers are normally issued in a set every four weeks. Each set has a use-by date so that they have to be used within a four-week period. All the use-by dates on a set of vouchers will be the same so that women and families can choose to combine them or use them in one or two shopping trips, rather than using them weekly. In a few cases, vouchers will be issued with a longer use-by date for example eight weeks ahead. This is usually because the woman or family new to the scheme is entitled to a few extra vouchers to cover the short space of time taken to process their application. Giving a longer use-by date on the extra vouchers ensures that the woman or family has every opportunity to use them up. 19.) Does a health professional have to give the vitamins to the beneficiary or client? No. The children s drops are classified as a medicinal product with a general sale licence. This means that even though they are medicines, it is not necessary for a health professional or pharmacist to supervise their supply. The women s tablets are classified as a food supplement and so there are also no restrictions on who may give them out. It is absolutely fine for reception staff; children centre staff etc to give the vitamins out. 20.) Does the person who gives out the vitamins have to take the new coupon from the beneficiary? PCTs might find it helpful to do so as it will be an easy way of keeping track of how many of each type have been given out through the scheme, making claiming costs from DH easier. In Ealing, NHS staffs are required to keep take the new coupon form the beneficiary and retain it for at least 12 months. We do NOT recommend that you retain the letter to which the coupon was attached, but if you do it should be stored in accordance with local procedures for handling sensitive information. 21.) Should vitamins be given out if the beneficiary has forgotten to bring their coupon letter? We recommend that staff do not make assumptions of entitlement where no coupon has been brought in. If a coupon has been mislaid, beneficiaries can contact the Healthy Start helpline to ask for a replacement. A replacement coupon will take a few days to arrive therefore staff can exercise discretion in situations where they know that the person requesting vitamins is on the scheme. Just remind them to bring the coupon next time. FAQ Healthy Start Vitamins Page 5 of 10

7 22.) How do PCTs record how many vitamins are given out? NHS Ealing will keep a record the amount given out. PCT finance departments should retain the charts for 12 months in case DH has to ask for additional information to support a specific claim for payment. Use the Healthy Start forms and Excel spreadsheet provided by the Healthy Start Coordinator. At the end of each month send the signed Form B (Monthly Summary Sheet) to the Healthy Start Coordinator, Public Health, NHS Ealing, 1 Armstrong Way, Southall, UB1 4SA. 23.) Do I then need to dispose of the coupons securely? The coupons do not contain any identifiable personal information and so secure destruction is not required, provided the letter they were attached to have not also been retained. Any other records created locally that identify individuals to whom vitamins have been given should be destroyed in accordance with local procedures for handling sensitive data. NHS Ealing requires that you keep the coupons for at least 12 months. 24.) Can PCTs sell the vitamins to non-beneficiaries? Yes, we would recommend that they are sold as this will help with stock levels and ensure more people are getting their recommended daily allowance of Vitamin D. The women s tablets should be sold at 90p and the children s drops sold at ) How should the vitamins be stored? The vitamins should be stored in a cool dry place. There are no specific temperature or storage requirements other than this. Please put new stock behind existing stock to avoid stock going out of date. 26.) Where can the vitamins are given out? The vitamins can be given out anywhere that the PCT chooses, including; health clinics, children s centres, Sure Start centres, outreach programmes, GP Surgeries etc. 27.) Can pharmacies distribute the vitamins? The manufacturers of the vitamins have not made them available through commercial wholesalers so pharmacies cannot get the vitamins directly. However, some PCTs may wish to make local arrangements with pharmacies to distribute them. In Ealing, we encourage pharmacists to recommend the Health Start supplements or direct customers to supplements that provide the vitamins in the quantity as found in the Health Start supplements. 28.) When should babies and children take the vitamin drops? The Government recommends that all infants and children from 6 months to 5 years should be given supplements containing vitamins A, C and D unless they are drinking 500 ml or more of infant formula a day at any time. If there is any doubt about the mother s use of vitamin status during pregnancy and/or breastfeeding they are from high risk groups, breastfed infants will benefit from Vitamin D supplements from 1 month. All breastfed babies need vitamin drops from 1 month if they are: African Afro-Caribbean Asian Middle Eastern All children, including those less than 6 months will receive coupons and the coupon can be exchanged for the Healthy Start vitamins for babies from 1 month. 29.) When should women take the vitamin tablets? Any pregnant woman getting Healthy Start vouchers, or any mother of a baby under one year old getting the vouchers is entitled to the women s tablets through the scheme. FAQ Healthy Start Vitamins Page 6 of 10

8 Pregnant teenagers, younger women and women from ethnic minorities are particularly at risk of vitamin D deficiency. Those living above 52 N (the UK is at a latitude of N) do not make enough vitamin D during the winter months. All women should take a vitamin supplement that contains vitamin D during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, especially women who are: African or Afro-Caribbean Asian Middle Eastern Obese Or don t get much sunlight on the skin These women require between 25 to 50 µg/day of vitamin D to ensure that they have enough. Therefore, these women should also take a daily supplement of calcium with vitamin D to provide an additional 20 µg/day. Reimbursement 30.) Will DH reimburse for all vitamins distributed to Healthy Start beneficiaries? Yes, as long as a quarterly invoice and HSVR (Healthy Start Vitamins Return) form are completed and sent to DH, DH will reimburse PCTs the standard NHS Supply Chain price per bottle for any supplements given free to Healthy Start beneficiaries.. PCTS do not need to submit any coupons collected, or local records, with the HSVR form and invoice. 31.) Will DH reimburse for vitamins given to non-beneficiaries? No, PCTs will only be reimbursed for vitamins given to those on the scheme in exchange for vouchers. 32.) How do PCTs claim for the vitamins given out to beneficiaries? NHS Ealing s Accounts Department will the HSVR form to the Department of Health. PCTs should send an invoice and scanned completed copy of the HSVR form (copy below) to or post it to Healthy Start returns, Room 703, Wellington House, Waterloo Road, London, SE1 8UG or scan and them to The expenditure amount will appear on your clinic s account statement against the expenditure code The reimbursed amount will appear on your clinic s account statement against the income code ) How often should PCTs claim for the vitamins distributed? DH will send a blank HSVR form to the finance contact in each PCT at the end of every quarter. We ask that this is returned with an invoice within one month. 34.) How will abuse of the scheme be prevented? Vouchers are individually traceable and contain a variety of security features to minimize the opportunities for forgery. When registering, retailers must agree to abide by a strict set of terms and conditions setting out what they may and may not do when accepting Healthy Start vouchers. Any reports of misconduct will be pursued and a range of sanctions is available, including warnings, removal from the scheme, suspension of payments and prosecution. Concerns can be reported to the Healthy Start Issuing Unit helpline on in the first instance, but serious suspicions can be reported directly to enforcement agencies. To report fraud: In England and Wales, call In Northern Ireland, call In Scotland, contact your local police force. FAQ Healthy Start Vitamins Page 7 of 10

9 All reports are treated in the strictest confidence. 35.) Can I provide feedback about the scheme and the application process? Definitely; feedback can be submitted via the internet site Unused bottles 36.) What if a vitamin bottle breaks? If the odd bottle breaks, include this on your monthly reports on the Excel sheet provided dispose of it in accordance with local protocols. NHS Ealing will claim this back from DH via the quarterly invoice. 37.) How should a PCT dispose of out of date vitamins? PCTs should follow local protocol to dispose of out of date supplements. When vitamins are delivered by NHS Supply Chain they should have at least 3 months left on the use by date. If they do not, you are not obliged to accept them and can contact NHS Supply Chain for guidance on replacement or refund. DH cannot reimburse PCTs for stock that has gone out of date due to over-ordering. Please try to order what you think you can use within 3 months smaller, frequent orders are good practice where demand is variable. Supply 38.) Have the supply issues from earlier in the year been resolved? Yes, both the children s drops and women s tablets are fully available to order through NHS Supply Chain.
