PSNC and the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) will be holding a ‘Prescription charge exemptions and switching’ webinar on Tuesday 22nd January at 7.30pm.

Are you interested in learning about:

  • How to determine a patient’s eligibility for exemption from the NHS prescription charge?
  • How to ensure that the backs of prescription forms and EPS tokens are completed correctly?
  • Tips on how to avoid prescriptions being switched from exempt to chargeable (and vice versa)?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, sign up to our webinar where Suraj Shah and Mitesh Bhudia, from PSNC’s Dispensing and Supply Team, and Alison O’Brien, from the NHSBSA, will provide the answers. During the 60-minute webinar, there will also be an opportunity for viewers to ask their own questions.

On the night the presenters will outline the different exemptions from the prescription charge, including the evidence needed to prove eligibility, and how the declaration process varies between paper and electronic prescriptions. NHSBSA will also discuss the success of its recent #checkbeforeyoutick campaign.*

This will be followed by details of why prescriptions are switched and how this affects pharmacy payments, as well as providing top tips on how to make sure switching isn’t a problem in your pharmacy.
