Update: This final price concession update for September 2020 was published by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) on 1st October 2020.

PSNC understands that the September 2020 concessionary price for Tolterodine 1mg tablets will be re-determined by DHSC. PSNC will communicate the new price to contractors as soon as it has been finalised.
