In England, if you require a prescription, you will have to pay a fee unless you are exempt. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

The fee’s are as follows:

  • Prescription (per item): £8.60
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £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 PPC.
