NHS Prescription Services is the largest organisational component of the NHS Business Services Authority, a special health authority of the National Health Service of England.

Its primary function is to determine the reimbursement and remuneration due when prescriptions are dispensed outside hospitals anywhere in England. Detailed information, collected when prescriptions are processed for payment, is then made available to organisations within the NHS, to support management, planning and governance activities.

NHS Prescription Services has previously been known as the Prescription Pricing Authority, and as the Prescription Pricing Division.
