Prescription Charges for 2016

The Department of Health announced in March that the price for an NHS prescription in England will increase by 20p to £8.40 with effect from April 2016.

The prices for 3 and 12 month pre-payment certificates have remained the same at £29.10 and £104 respectively. For anyone requiring more than 3 items in 3 months or more than 12 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.
