Information on charges and help available
A Prescription will cost £9.00 per item.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a Pre-payment certificate. Pre-payment certificates cost £29.10 for 3 months or £104.00 for 12 months.
The prescription charge is a contribution to the NHS. It is NOT a payment to the practice.
