Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

 

The current NHS prescription charge is £7.40 per drug or item that you are prescribed.

 

There are a number of circumstances where the prescription charge can be reduced or is free:




    • Some medications have no charge (e.g. contraception)

 


    • Some people are exempt from prescription charges (e.g. if you are over 60)

 


    • If you have certain long term medical conditions (e.g. diabetes), your prescriptions are free

 


    • If you need regular prescriptions, you may find it cheaper to buy a prescription prepayment certificate

 


    • If you have a low income, you may qualify for help with prescription charges.
