Script charge increase

The Department of Health has announced the NHS prescriptions charges will increase by 10p to £7.20 per item with effect from 1st April 2009.

The public health minister has noted that 89% of prescription charges in England are dispensed for free. It is also acknowledged that the remaining prescriptions, where charges are levied, provide valuable income for the NHS.

Action: All clinicians should be aware of the current prescription charging arrangements.
