Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

There are extensive exemption and remission arrangements to 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 is thought to be a reasonable charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines.

Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer a cost-effective solution for people who need extensive medication.

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


NHS charges

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

  • Prescription (per item): £8.40
  • 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 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
