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). Currently the following are exempt from charges:

  • Men and women over 60 years
  • People under 16 years
  • People under 19 years in full time education
  • Pregnant women and mothers up to one year after the birth
  • People on income support or family credit
  • People suffering from epilepsy, diabetes, hypothyroidism, diabetes insipidus, Addison's disease, myasthenia gravis.

For other patients the NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which Government has thought it reasonable to charge those who can afford to pay for their medicines. If you have to pay for prescriptions, and if you need extensive medication, prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings.
