Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Please Note the new Prescription Charge from 1 April 2020 will be £9.15.

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount per item which the Government sets annually. The practice for Dispensing patients collects these payments and they are passed to the NHS Prescription service.  

Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
