Are you eligible for FREE prescriptions?
There are multiple factors that might make you eligible for FREE prescriptions, this includes where you live, age, income, as well as certain medical conditions or disabilities.
Firstly, if you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland you may be eligible for free prescriptions on the NHS.
If you live in England, there are a number of factors that could mean you may be eligible for free prescriptions. This includes if the prescription is for a contraceptive, if you are under 16, aged 16-18 and in full-time education or aged 60 or over, or if you have certain medical conditions.

What are prepayment certificates?
For those who aren’t eligible for free prescriptions, a prepayment certificate can help towards the costs of your prescriptions.
A prepayment certificate is where you pay a lump sum for all prescriptions you have coming up in the next three or 12 months, depending on the type of certificate you get. These can help you save money if you have more than one prescription item per month. Interested, here’s all you need to know about prepayment certificates.
What to do with medications you no longer need?
Did you know you can bring in your old medicines to your local LloydsPharmacy for safe disposal, so you don’t have to worry about disposing of them safely. Find out more about disposing of medication.
