Prescription charge increase - 2021

  • England

Information Services would like to make members in England aware that the government has increased prescription charges to £9.35 per item as of 1st April 2021.

There has also been an increase to the cost of pre-payment certificates:

Pre-payment certificates:

  • 3 month PPC - £30.25  (increase of 60p)
  • 12 month PPC - £108.10 (increase of £2.20)

Pharmacy contractors should also note that it is a contractual requirement to display the 2021 prescription charge notice.

The PSNC has produced two charge cards you are able to download:

Take a look at our advice on dealing with prescriptions issued in March but collected in April.

English prescriptions dispensed in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland must be charged for under English rules. Patients from devolved countries presenting prescriptions to be dispensed in England may be charged the English prescription charge.
