Prescription Charges

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 Prescription charges as of the 1st of April 2017

  • The current prescription charge is £8.60 (£16.80 per pair od elastic hosiery)
  • From 1 April 2010 a three monthly PPC is £29.10. This saves you money if you need four or more items in three months. 
  • A 12 month certificate is £104.00 and saves money if 15 or more items are needed in 12 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.
