Prescription Prepayment Certificates

If you do have to pay for prescriptions you could save money with a Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC). This lets you get as many NHS prescriptions as you need for a set price. It includes NHS dental prescriptions.

If you regularly pay prescription charges, a PPC could save you money. Find out more about Prescription Prepayment Certificates and how to apply.
