Prescription pre-payment certificates

If you need more than three medications in a three month period, or more than 11 prescriptions in 12 months, a Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) will help you save money.

An NHS prescription costs £9.35 per item but with a PPC, you can get all of your own NHS prescriptions, no matter how many items you need for the following costs:

  • £30.25 for 3 months
  • £108.10 for 12 months (monthly payment plan is available)

Please note:

You can buy a PPC through a registered pharmacy, or online. Your PPC will be valid from the day you call or submit your application.
