So I have epilepsy and have to get my prescription every three weeks but as a Welsh student would I have to pay for it in an English university or does NHS Wales come in to it?

You'll have to pay for it (unless you can get an exemption certificate - have a look online for that, but I know just being a university student won't qualify you for that). For the free prescriptions in Wales you need to be registered with a doctor in Wales and pick it up from a Welsh pharmacy.
I forgot you pay for prescriptions in England and I was very confused when I was asked to pay for mine the first time
EDIT: I had a quick look and if your form of epilepsy needs 'continuous anti convulsive therapy' you can get an exemption certification, so you'll get your prescriptions for free. You can apply for it online or (I think!) you can do it at a pharmacy.Last edited by Firefly13; 05-09-2016 at 11:38.

Because you have epilepsy, you apply for the exemption through your GP.
