Prescription prepayment certificate

In our work with Healthwatch Warwickshire, the Consumer Champion for people who use health and social care services in Warwickshire, we have become aware that people who have multiple prescriptions often don’t know that they can save significant amounts of money by buying a prescription prepayment certificate.  In one extreme case we helped a client save over £700 per year by identifying this way of paying for prescriptions.

We are working with Healthwatch Warwickshire to publicise this under-used source of help for clients.  If you work with anyone who has multiple prescriptions, you might want to help them investigate this, or signpost them to your local Citizens Advice and we will help.
