Prescription Prepayment Certificates
If you are not entitled to free prescriptions and you think you will have to pay for more than 5 items in 4 months or 14 items in 12 months you may find it cheaper to buy a Prescription Prepayment Certificate.
Contact the NHS Business Services Authority to obtain a Prescription Prepayment Certificate. You can purchase a certificate by telephone (0845 850 0030) or you can buy on-line via their website at www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk.
For payment by post, complete a PPC application form FP95, available from pharmacies and doctors surgeries. You can also download an application form in portable document format at:
When you have completed and signed the form, send it with a cheque, postal order or credit/debit card details to:
