Script charge increase for 2012

The Department of Health has announced earlier this year that prescription charges for England will rise by 25 pence to £7.65 with effect from 1st April 2012. Charges have already been abolished in Wales and Northern Ireland and Scotland planning.

The price for both the three and twelve month pre-payment certificates remain unchanged at £29.10 and £104.00 respectively. These represent good value for money for people who would be required to pay an NHS prescription charge and who expect to need 4 or more prescriptions in a 3 month period or 14 or more prescriptions in a year.

Action: Clinicians should be aware of the current prescription charge and also the value for money represented by pre-payment certificates.
