The DHSC previously announced (15.10.2021) the following list of price concessions:

Drug Pack size Price Concession
Glyceryl trinitrate 400micrograms/dose pump sublingual spray 200 £2.83
Lamotrigine 5mg dispersible tablets sugar free 28 £8.43

Contractors can find information on the first batch of price concessions here, and learn about the process involved on PSNC’s website.

A price concession only applies for the month in which it is granted. No additional prescription endorsement are required as the new price is automatically applied by the NHS BSA to all items submitted for payment in the same month for which a price concession is granted.

PSNC is still working with the DHSC to agree further concessionary prices on other drugs reported to be unavailable at the stated October 2021 Drug Tariff price.
