Prescription Charges and Exemptions

There is help available for people who may have problems meeting the costs of NHS Prescriptions.

Prescription Pre Payment Certificates (PCC's) offer savings if you regularly have to get several prescriptions.

Prescription Costs in England (as at 1 April 2017)

  • The current prescription charge is £8.60 per item (£17.20 per pair of elastic hosiery).

  • A 3 monthly PPC is £29.10 and saves you money if you need four or more items in three months.

  • A 12 month certificate is £104.00 and saves money if fourteen or more items are needed in twelve months.

PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
