Who Can Get Free Prescriptions?
Free prescriptions are available to anyone who meets the qualifying requirements established by their local clinical commissioning committee.
Pregnant women and new mothers, as well as individuals with a valid HC2 certificate from the NHS Low Income Scheme, fall under this category (LIS).
It’s important to note that different rules apply in Northern Ireland, so you should check with your local health care provider to learn more about the options available there.
In addition, some individuals may be eligible for cheaper prescriptions via NHS Prescription Prepayment Certificates.
If you are unclear of your eligibility for free or discounted prescriptions, it is always a good idea to consult your local pharmacy or clinic, as they may be able to provide advice tailored to you.
