Prescriptions – If you have a long term condition you may be eligible for free prescriptions rather than paying charges. For more details of who is eligible for free prescriptions, click here. If you need a lot of prescriptions but you're not eligible for free prescriptions, you can purchase a three month or an annual Pre Payment Certificate (PPC) which will save you money if you need more than 3 prescriptions in 3 months, or more than 11 prescriptions in a year.


Specialist shoes – where someone requires wide fit shoes due to a health condition they may be able to buy these VAT free saving them money.
