Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM 01 JANUARY 2017 THE MEDICATION NORETHISTERONE (USED TO DELAY MENSTRUATION) WILL BE PRESCRIBED ON A PRIVATE PRESCRIPTION BASIS, THE COST WILL BE DEPENDENT ON HOW MANY TABLETS ARE REQUIRED.

 

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.

 

NHS CHARGES

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.35
  • 3-month Prepayment certificate (PPC): £30.25
  • 12-month PPC: £108.10 (available by 10 monthly direct debit instalments).

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.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
