Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Prescriptions are paid for by the patient, except in specific circumstances.  The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount. A prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) can offer savings for those who need extensive medication.

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

  • Prescription (per item): £9.35
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
  • 3-month PPC: £30.25

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.
