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.

NHS charges

From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
• Prescription (per item): £9.00
• 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
• 3-month PPC: £29.10

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. The charge for a single prescription item is £9.00, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT CORONAVIRUS

Information is available at: https://gov.uk/coronavirus and https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19

Advice for people at high risk: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/advice-for-people-at-high-risk/

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus. This includes people of all ages
– even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions.

You can only leave your home:

  • to shop for basic essentials – only when you really need to
  • to do one form of exercise a day – such as a run, walk or cycle, alone or with other people you live with
  • for any medical need – for example, to visit a pharmacy or deliver essential supplies to a vulnerable person
  • to travel to and from work – but only where this is absolutely necessary

 

Coronavirus symptoms

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
    (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
    (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home.
  • Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.
  • Use the 111 coronavirus service
  • Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
  • Get an isolation note
