Script charge increase for 2011

The Department of Health has announced the prescription charges for England will rise by 20 pence to £7.40 with effect from 1st April 2011. Charges have already been abolished in Wales and Northern Ireland with Scotland planning to remove charges with effect from April 2011.

The price for a 3 month prepayment certificate will also rise by 85 pence to £29.10 but the price of a 12 month prepayment certificate will remain unchanged at £104.00. These certificates represent good value for money for people who will need more than 4 prescriptions in a 3 month period or more than 14 in a year.

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