Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate, per item 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 savings for those people who are not exempt and need extensive medication.

Extensive exemption arrangements protect those with certain conditions (cancer, thyroid problems, diabetes needing medication etc)  and those likely to have difficulty in paying charges.

On the rare occasion that a private prescription is required please be aware that both doctor and pharmacist may charge a fee for processing. This would be discussed with you at the time of issue.


NHS prescription costs

  • current prescription charge – £9.00 per item (£17.20 per pair of elastic hosiery)
  • three-month PPC – £29.10; this will save you money if you need more than three prescribed items in three months 
  • 12-month PPC – £104.00; this will save you money if you need more than 12 prescribed items in a year

PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 a week.

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