Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Many patients are entitled to free prescriptions.  Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). Please visit the NHS website for more details on help with NHS costs including prescriptions.

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines.  Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive regular medication.
