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).

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.

From 1 April 2019 the charges are:

NHS prescription costs

  • current prescription charge – £9.00 per item (£17.60 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.
