I'm a 18 year old student at university I was wondering whether I now have to pay for my own prescriptions because I'm at university?

Unless you apply for a hc2 certificate because you have a low income then yes you do.

Only when you turn 19!

I am from a poor family and got full loans and a 1k bursary every year and I was able to get a HC2 certificate in my second and third year, so it's worth doing.

The nhsba seem to only count student proof as school or college letters but then I ve never seen anyone caught out for it who was at uni so you re probably right.

I m a bit non committal with my answer if they re a university student as they aren't too clear about it but never had a patient come back with a fine so it's likely to be okay.

How expensive are prescriptions in England?

We still recieve free prescriptions in Scotland but income tax is being frozen to maintain this.

Your prescriptions are free until you turn 19 and are in full time education.
