Works out cheaper if your on long term medication.
Patients who have to pay for more than 4 prescription items in 3 months or 14 items in 12 months may find it cheaper to buy a pre-payment certificate (PPC).
This is hardly ever advertised where i live and i think it's very usefull. Hope this helps someone!

This Is Also Available In Wales & Scotland.

I posted it over a month ago. But as the rules state -

Some guidelines for a repost are:
If the product has dropped in price by at least £1.00
If a thread is at least one month old.
If specific changes or information for a product has increased its value.
If the product goes out of stock, expired and you are unable to back order it, but it has been restocked within at least one week.

So as the post is over a month old i thought i would repost.
This helps a lot of people and if always useful to know.

I have one of these, yes it is cheaper if you are on long term medication etc, but I don't think its a deal, its the cost price.

Nope nope.
I'm not bothered about getting heat.
I suppose i could have posted it on Misc but i do think it's a deal because it's money saving.
And it's for people's health? :thumbsup:

Voting cold - the price you quote is the price for a 12 month certificate

Is it on special offer? NO
Has it been reduced? NO
Will it be this price next week, and the following week and the week after and in 4 weeks time when it gets re-posted? YES

So its not a hot deal - its just the usual price

Rip off England yet again.
It irritates me how we are all meant to be a part of the UK, but we end up paying more in England.
Not on!

Also, I got one of these cards and then was made redundant. Typical.
I'll never get anything for free!!!

not really a deal, governement is still screwing over £100 a year from you for something that should be free. No more a deal than a cut in income tax or VAT!

That said I have one of these, and pay monthly by direct debit, worthwhile if you need more than a couple of items a month

Yep.... you cant really argue with that. This is the price that is set by Government, its like putting up a deal saying that a years Car Road Tax is cheaper than buying 6 months.
It aint a hot deal.... in fact it isn't a deal at all.
Cold.
#11
but maybe worth buying in march, they tend to put prescription prices up every April so I would assume the 12mth price would rise at the same time

we cant afford to have ours free, our taxes are bailing out the royal bank of SCOTLAND

Prescriptions are cheaper in Scotland compared to England but still not free.:thumbsup:

What I tend to do is conspire with the Asthma nurse and buy 2 x 3 months twice a year, then stock up on inhalers etc. while the certificate is valid, not suggesting massive stock piling but just stretching the supplies out a bit...

free in wales :) voted cold

Agreed not a deal but a lot of the public don't know a bout it so for getting the message out the some heat, this post is beneficial especially for those who's doctors are going over to 28 day prescribing
#18
I read in a national paper the PPC could get stretched to cover a longer period if you were to order 2 or even 3 months worth of medicines just before its expiry date.

I have certainly done this recently where by i was able to order 2 months worth of medicine supply just as the PPC was about to end. (I have a monthly repeat prescription. Didn't want to push my luck going for 3 months worth just yet).

If asked why double prescription is required you could say you won't be able to re-order next time due to being on holiday or working away etc.)

I read in the paper that doctors are not allowed to prescribe more than 3 months worth.

Voted hot, thanks OP. You're trying to help people, that is great.
#20
Someone commented that this is not saving money deal because it is the normal price, that's rubbish, because if you were not aware of this (like me) and you were paying every time you got an individual prescription you could be spending alot more money! I live in Wales so get them free, but I just thought I would point thisout.

Why should prescriptions be free? If you lived overseas you would be paying £50 just to see the doctor. I never begrudge paying £7 for something to make my health better whilst my Bro in NZ pays 4 times that just to have a consultation. :p

Just my personal opinion, we pay a fortune in tax and national insurance and still have to pay. I agree it's good we have the NHS and generally free healthcare for all, however if there was less waste and beaurocracy then there would be no need to charge.
#23
Personally speaking I don't feel we have it so bad in the UK when it comes to healthcare and costs but thats just me.
#24
I'd never heard of this - would have voted hot but its been expired.
Thanks for the info anyway.
