NHS prescription charges in England to be frozen

NHS prescription charges in England are to be frozen for the first time in 12 years, the government has confirmed.

Single prescription charges, which the Department of Health said would normally rise “in line with inflation”, will remain at £9.35 until next year.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said freezing the costs would “put money back in people’s pockets”.

Campaigners welcomed the move but pointed out that 90% of prescriptions dispensed are already free of charge.

Spring Covid-19 Booster

You may be offered appointment dates from 3 months (91 days) after your last dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. But try to book an appointment around 6 months after your last dose to get the best protection from your spring booster.
