We have received many queries about the recent announcement from the UK government to do with prescribing hormone replacement therapy (HRT
Prior to 1 November 2021, HRT was being prescribed in monthly or 3-monthly prescriptions. However, from this date GP’s can prescribe up to 12-monthly prescriptions if the patient has been reviewed and considered stable on the prescribed medication. Please discuss this with your GP at your next medication review to consider if this is appropriate for you.
Please also note that the requirement to pay multiple prescription charges for some HRT products that contain more than one ingredient has not been changed at this time. This is still being considered by the government.
