Save Money on your Prescriptions

Did you know that you can pay a set amount per month for as many prescriptions as you need? As long as you live in England, you can sign up for a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) from the NHS which may make your prescriptions cheaper.

A 3 or 12-month PPC covers all your prescriptions for that period, no matter how many you need. A prescription costs £9.35 per item, but a PPC costs:

  • £30.25 for 3 months
  • £108.10 for 12 months

This means if you’re going to buy 4 or more prescriptions in 3 months, or 12 or more prescriptions in 12 months, you could save money with a prescription prepayment certificate.

You can pay in 10 monthly instalments if you buy a 12-month prescription prepayment certificate.

How to get a prescription prepayment certificate

You can buy PPCs online or call the order line on 0300 330 1341 and pay by debit card or credit card. Please be aware that there is a charge for the phoneline.
