Home visits are for the totally housebound or very seriously ill. Please telephone before 10.30am and be prepared to give the receptionist some indication of the nature and urgency of the problem. The doctor will usually wish to speak to you before arranging to visit.

Prescription costs: make savings

How people with long-term health conditions can save money on prescription costs, including how to claim for free prescriptions and how to buy a prescription charge 'season ticket'

Some people are entitled to free prescriptions due to their age, income or medical condition. You are eligible for free NHS prescriptions if you:

  • are aged 60 or over
  • are aged under 16
  • are aged 16-18 and in full-time education
  • have a medical exemption certificate because your condition is on the list, you or your partner are on income support, or you can qualify via other benefits or tax credits

To find out if you’re eligible for free prescriptions, read our information on help with health costs.

Save money on your prescription costs

If you can't get free prescriptions, there is another way to save money.

A Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) is a kind of prescription charge season ticket. It covers you for all of your own NHS prescription charges, no matter how many items you need.

The charge for a single prescription is £7.65, whereas a three-month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12-month PPC is £104.00. To help spread the cost of a 12-month certificate you can pay by direct debit with 10 monthly instalments.

It's easy to buy a PPC. You can:

  • buy online, visit GOV.UK for more information
  • phone on 0845 850 0030
  • fill in form FP95 which you can get from your pharmacy
  • some phamacies sell them direct
