HRT prepayment certificate

Posted on May 16th, 2023

By Dr Sarah Gray, Kernow LMC Committee Member and Women’s Health expert

Women can now purchase a hormone replacement therapy prescription prepayment certificate (HRTPPC) for the cost of two prescription charges (£19.30).

This will cover NHS prescriptions for HRT for a year, but:

  1. Will not be needed, if already exempt.
  2. It only includes the items on the published list. We should assume that they have been selected because of licensing, though there are a couple of anomalies. The list is not inclusive of all the products that may be used and if, for example, another progestogen is used, it will be charged. Testosterone is not licensed and will be charged.
  3. If a woman’s regime includes other products, then an annual prepayment certificate may be a better choice for them – and will cover all prescriptions.
  4. If the listed products are used for any other indication, the HRTPPC can still be used.
  5. When writing/printing a prescription, the FP10 submitted under the HRTPPC can only include the HRT items otherwise all will be charged – you may have to issue two separate FP10s.
