Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). 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 medication.
Patients who are pregnant or with certain medical conditions are eligible for exemption from prescription charges. Application forms are held at the surgery, please ask at reception.
In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
These charges apply in England only.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
