Whilst other drugs can be classed as contraceptives, they may not have been prescribed for that purpose. These drugs must be marked as being for contraceptive purposes in order to be dispensed free of charge.
If you have been dispensed a drug that was for contraceptive purposes, but have received a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), please contact us.
