The new dispensing fee for the period October 2021 to April 2022 has been released with a drop in the fee paid per item as listed below. The average fall in the fee is 33.4p, which means for every 1000 items dispensed the drop in income will be about £334 per month. Over the six month period this will be approximately £2000 for a dispensary issuing 1000 items per month.
For those dispensing GPs with a large dispensing list size the results will be a dramatic loss of income which is vital to support rural healthcare.
