NHS Prescriptions

DescriptionNHS prescriptions are medicines from the National Health Service provided to people who need them. Most people pay for their NHS medicine prescriptions. If you need lots of prescriptions regularly, you may be able to save money with a prescription prepayment certificate.

Some people may get their prescriptions for free. For example, if you are under 16, on a low income, if you have a physical disability that means you can't go out without someone's help, and some other circumstances. To find out more, visit the NHS Choices website.
