You could save money on your prescriptions

If you are on a low income, or pay for more than three prescription items in three months, or 11 items in 12 months, you could save money on your prescriptions.

A Prescription Prepayment Certificate covers all NHS prescriptions for a set pre-paid price, or spread over 10 direct debit payments.

People on a low income could be entitled to help with costs or free prescriptions through the low income scheme, depending on your circumstances.
