The fee’s are as follows:
- Prescription (per item): £9.00
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00

You can find up to date fees, including fees for wigs and fabric supports on the GOV Website
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.
