Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs) or for whom the costs associated with long term treatment may be excessive.

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): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

If you will have to pay for 4 or more prescription items in 3 months, or more than 13 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. An annual PPC can be purchased over 12 months through the Direct Debit scheme.

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