For full details of prescription fees and exemptions please go to the NHS website.
The current NHS charges for those who have to pay prescription fees are:
- Prescription (per item): £8.60
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
- 3-month PPC: £29.10
If you 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.
