We have committed to reducing the cost of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) prescriptions through a bespoke pre-payment certificate.  This will be introduced by April 2023 and will enable women to access as many National Health Service prescriptions for HRT medicines licensed for treatment of the menopause as required for an annual cost of two single item prescription charges, which is currently £18.70.
