I am on 3 different medications for my depression, I am 19 and in full time education but apparently because I am 19 I am not entitled to a free prescription however my psychiatrist thinks I will most likely need to be medicated for the rest of my life. It costs me nearly £30 a month for medication, is there any exemption I can get for paying prescriptions if me being on medication is a long term situation?

If you get a Pre-Payment prescription it’s like 104 for the year with unlimited items and you can split it to £10 a month for 10 months with the first payment being £14. I used to have this as I’m on 13 items a month.

If it’s due to medical and you’re not working apply for a HC2 (you need less than 16k in savings and can’t own property) and you’ll get it all free including free dental.

Search PPC or prepayment plan. It covers all NHS prescriptions (Green ones) it’s a NHS site.

Or for a HS2 just search that and ring then Tomorrow and they’ll send out a form

Just make sure your HC2 is in date when getting medicine
