The prescription charge on your PCN relates to the prescription you collected.

The date the prescription was collected shows on your PCN.

Prescription costs are calculated on the number of items prescribed. 2 items prescribed on a single prescription will cost twice the standard prescription amount.

Some prescribed items may have more than one prescription charge if the pack contains more than one ingredient.

As of 1 May 2024, the standard prescription item cost is £9.90. Before May 2024 it was £9.65.
