NHS Business Services Agency has issued two documents supporting the return of the requirement for patients to complete prescription exemption details.

The temporary signature suspension due to Covid-19 precautions was lifted with effect from September 1st. The NHSBSA documents set out:

  • exemption checking requirements including eligibility categories; and
  • the contractual requirements around collecting patient exemption declarations and advice for patients, including posters that can be downloaded.
