The UK Government has confirmed the NHS prescription charge will remain at £9.35 per prescribed item in April 2022. The NHS prescription charge is reviewed annually with changes usually made in April, but this year the Government has yet to conclude consideration of any future increases to prescription charges.

Prescription Processing Times
We are unfortunately seeing increases in delays for preparing and fulfilling some repeat prescriptions — due to a number of factors out of our control. A key factor increasing waiting times currently is a large workload on GP practices, meaning they are sometimes unable to process prescription requests as quickly as previously. This delay can then be further exacerbated by supply issues, and potential acute staffing shortages due to self-isolation requirements at our pharmacy sites. Please ensure you order repeat medications in plenty of time wherever possible.
