Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Exemption arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges for NHS prescriptions, dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs. 

Certain medical conditions (eg. diabetes, pregnancy) also entitle selected patients to be exempt from paying.  The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which is set by the Government for all those who are not exempt.  

Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need long term medication.  Ask at our reception if you require a PPC application form or use the link above.
