• NHS prescriptions;

Anyone can apply as long as they don't have savings or investments over a certain limit. You can't get help if you or your partner (or both) have more than:

  • £16,000 in savings, investments or property (not including the place where you live)

According to the OP's post:

  • £23,250 in savings, investments or property if you live permanently in a care home (£24,000 if you live in Wales)

But somebody could earn £100,000/annum but have less than £16000 in savings and one house - so there probably is an income limit too somewhere.

Thanks for posting op
What about someone that is a carer, unemployed and doesn't claim any benefits not even jsa? Can they claim for free prescription,as I thought you had to be claiming some type of benefit to get free prescription?
So you get penalised if you save ?
All free for us in Scotland
Gosh wish I'd seen this the last 6 years that I was a student and struggling to afford eye tests. Just getting my first pay check next week so probably will not be eligible anymore, but voted Hot! Something to pass on to younger friends and relatives who are still studying
Hey I'm a hca and my friend is a nurse. Do I qualify for this?
