Are you claiming free prescriptions?

Are you claiming free prescriptions? Don’t assume you’re entitled.

You could have to pay up to £100 – as well as your prescription charge.

We have put this page together with official NHS guidance (PDF documents attached) explaining everything you need to know.

This also includes a easy read version of this guidance.

If you receive Universal Credit, you may also qualify for help with health costs.

For more information and help with health costs for people getting Universal Credit visit the NHS website

For more information you can also visit the NHS Business Service Authority
