Following the recent announcement of the rise in NHS Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) prices from 1st April 2021, PSNC has designed a poster explaining the savings that a PPC could achieve for patients that regularly pay for their prescriptions. PSNC has produced two versions of the 2021/22 PPC poster as downloadable PDFs that can be printed and displayed in community pharmacies from 1st April 2021.

Note: Pharmacies that are registered to sell PPCs should add and submit details of all PPCs sold in March 2021 on the PPC Pharmacy sales web application by 11.59pm on 31st March 2021 to ensure that the correct PPC rate deductions are applied by the NHSBSA.

From 1st April, the prices of a three-month PPC goes up to £30.25 (an increase of 60 pence) and a 12-month PPC goes up to £108.10 (an increase of £2.20). PPCs offer savings for those needing more than one NHS prescription item per month.
