Prescription Costs

Visit NHS Choices Prescription Costs Information Page for info on:

  • Prescription charges
  • Who is entitled for free prescriptions
  • Medical exemptions (certain diseases will exempt you from paying for your prescription)
  • Free prescriptions for cancer patients, renal dialysis patients and pregnant women
  • Help for those on low income

Please note: medications that have been prescribed by a private doctor may not always be available for prescription on the NHS. If that is the case, we will advise you to obtain these medications from your the doctor who prescribed them.  If we can prescribe an alternative or generic equivalent on the NHS, we will do so.
