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 2021, the charges are: 

      • Prescription (per item): £9.35

      • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10

      • 3-month PPC: £30.25



If you 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 Prescription Prepayment Certificate [PPC].  The charge for a single prescription item is £9.35, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £30.25 and a 12 month PPC £108.10.
