The prices for 3 and 12 month pre-payment certificates has remained the same at £29.10 and £104 respectively. For anyone requiring more than 4 items in 3 months or more than 13 in a year these certificates can provide significant savings.

Other NHS charges such as for dental work, wigs and fabric supports are also being increased.

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