October concession increase for Risperidone 2mg tablets

November 16, 2018

Following further representations from PSNC, there will be an increase to the October 2018 price concession for Risperidone 2mg tablets.

The price concession is now set at £20.00 for a pack of 60 tablets. This revised price will be automatically applied to any prescriptions for Risperidone 2mg tablets submitted in October prescription bundles.

Originally imposed at a price of £1.80 by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), PSNC requested a review of the concessionary price on behalf of community pharmacy contractors.

This concession has been put in place for October 2018 only and announcements about any November concessions will be made in due course.

Please do continue to report supply issues using PSNC’s generic shortages form which can be found here.
