The list of distance selling pharmacies used in that calculation is in the attached table alongside their average number of prescription items in 2017/18. It would prejudice companies’ commercial interest to disclose the average fee per prescription item for each individual contractor and for this reason this information is provided as a range between £1.25 and £23.74.
