Prescription Charge Update

Prescription Charge Update

As of the 1st of April, prescription charges in England will rise by 20p to £9, for each medicine or appliance dispensed. The cost of prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) remains unchanged: A three-month PPC remains at £29.10, and an annual PPC at £104. These offer savings to people who need at least four medicines in a three-month period and at least 12 during one year.
