Further information on price concessions and FAQs about the process involved can be found here, on the website of the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC).

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 NHSBSA to all items submitted for payment in the same month for which a price concession is granted.

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