Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions


NHS charges

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

  • Prescription (per item): £8.60
  • 12-month Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month Prescription Prepayment Certificate: £29.10

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 Prescription Prepayment Certificate. 

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
