Changes to the FP10 NHS prescription form
New prescription forms are being introduced in England to help eligible patients correctly claim free NHS prescriptions and avoid penalty charges.
The suite of FP10 prescription forms has been changed by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA). The exemption boxes on the back of the prescription form(s) have been updated to make it easier for patients to claim the exemptions to which they are entitled.
The updated FP10 forms include a new exemption box U for patients who are in receipt of Universal Credit and meet the criteria for free NHS prescriptions. Patients can find out if they’re entitled to free NHS prescriptions, NHS dental treatment and help with other NHS costs using the online eligibility checker.
