Pharmacy minister Maria Caulfield has clarified some arrangements for reducing the cost of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) prescriptions.

In a parliamentary answer to Stockton South MP Matt Vickers, she said that from April 2023, annual prescription prepayment certificate for HRTs will be available for the cost of two single prescription items at £18.70.

In a separate answer, Caulfield also confirmed that there is no current timeline for the implementation of longer prescribing cycles.
