Are you entitled to exemption from prescription costs?
Conditions entitling you to free prescriptions:
If you have any of the conditions listed above, ask for application form from your GP's surgery. You will need to fill it in and your doctor (or an authorised member of the practice staff) will sign to confirm the information you've given is correct. You will then be sent a Medical Exemption Certificate.
If you have a Medical Exemption Certificate, all your prescriptions are free, whatever the medication is prescribed for.
