Prescription Fees

Help with NHS costs

In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:

  • those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
  • those who are age exempt
  • those with certain medical conditions
  • More information is available at NHS Choices

Please note this fee is paid to the surgery but is then deducted from the payment made to the Practice from NHS England for supplying this service. Thus the Practice makes no money from charging for Prescriptions.

NHS Charges

These following charges apply for Prescriptions if you are not exempt from paying Prescription charges.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90

If you will 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 PPC.
