A price concession only applies for the month in which it is granted. No additional endorsements are required for price concessions.

PSNC is still working with the DHSC to agree further concessionary prices on other drugs reported to be unavailable at the stated December 2020 Drug Tariff price. Please note that PSNC cannot provide details of any generic products awaiting price concession approval from the DHSC.

If you have problems obtaining a Part VIII product at the stated Drug Tariff price, please report the issue using the online feedback form on the PSNC website. Please include full details of the supplier and price paid for any products sourced above the Drug Tariff price. PSNC will investigate the extent of the problem and, if appropriate, discuss the issue with DHSC.

Contractors will be alerted to further updates to the price concession list through our website and via our e-news email.  If you wish to subscribe to our email list, you can receive an email as soon as any announcements are made.
