Prescription charges

The Department of Health has announced the price increases affecting NHS Prescription Charges in England.

Effective from 1st April 2007 the price for a single NHS Prescription item rose from £6.65 to £6.85.

Prices for pre-payment certificates (PPC) were also affected:

  • 12 month PPC now £98.70 (from £95.30)
  • 4 month PPC now £35.85 (from £34.65)
  • 3 month PPC new at £26.85

The same prices as above apply in Scotland although the Scottish Executive is finalising a consultation on prescription charges. Meanwhile, in Wales all prescription charges have been abolished.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of the cost of the NHS prescription charge because some items may be less expensive to purchase for some individuals.
