The DHSC has announced that, since launching the HRT prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) on 1 April last year, more than 500,000 women in England have accessed cheaper HRT, saving hundreds of pounds in prescription charges.

A key pillar of the first year of England’s Women’s Health Strategy, the HRT PPC has reduced prescription costs to just £19.30 per year. It can be used against a list of eligible HRT items, including patches, tablets and topical preparations. Patients can use the HRT PPC as many times as needed throughout the year.
