Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
In England, NHS prescriptions are charged per item. As of April 1 2016 each item costs £8.40.

A three-month PPC costs £29.10 and a 12-month PPC costs £104.00. You can purchase a PPC as follows:
