Prescription charge increase

From 1st April 2020

The NHS prescription charge will increase from 1 April 2020 by 15 pence to £9.15 for each prescribed item. You will be charged the new amount if you collect your prescription on or after 1 April even if your GP issued your prescription before this date.

New Prices

  • Prescription charge: £9.15
  • 3-month prepayment card: £29.65
  • 12-month prepayment: £105.90

If you regularly pay prescription charges, a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) could save you money.
