The October concessionary price for risperidone 2mg tablets has been “redetermined” from £1.80 to £20.00, the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) has announced.

The price concession is now set at £20.00 for a pack of 60 tablets and will be automatically applied to any prescriptions submitted in the October prescription bundle, PSNC said.

The increase comes “following further representation from PSNC”, the negotiator said.

“Originally imposed at a price of £1.80 by the Department of Health and Social Care, PSNC requested a review of the concessionary price on behalf of community pharmacy contractors,” PSNC added.

A total of 44 concessionary prices were announced for October. An initial nine prices were announced on October 23, followed by 15 on October 26 and a further 20 on November 1.

How are we supposed to operate our businesses if we don't know if we will be reimbursed? Can we do what dispensing doctors do and refuse to dispense?
