How to get a medical exemption certificate?

Patients with certain medical conditions can get free NHS prescriptions if they hold a valid medical exemption certificate. Details of these conditions can be found at

To claim for prescription exemption please pick up a medical prescription exemption application from GP Surgery. After completing the form please drop it at the reception. We will check your request validation and then send it to Prescription Exemption Authority for their approval. Once they approve, they will send a certificate in you address.
