Further information on price concessions and FAQs about the process involved can be found on –

This price concession only applies for the month in which it is granted that is the current month of May. No additional prescription endorsement are required as the new price is automatically applied by the NHSBSA to all items submitted for payment in the same month for which a price concession is granted.

However, PSNC claimed of working with the DHSC to agree further concessionary prices on other drugs reported to be unavailable at the stated May 2021 Drug Tariff price.
