For Those Who Have Repeat Prescriptions: Prescription Prepayment Certificates (PPCs)

One of my technicians has prescriptions regularly. She was only recently told about this and now she is saving money by buying one of these certificates on a regular basis.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. The charge for a single prescription item is £7.40, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
A PPC covers you for all of your own NHS prescriptions, no matter how many items you need.
