These charges apply in England only from 1st April 2019. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.00

  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00

    If you 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.
