Support for NHS costs

Although most NHS treatment is free, there are some costs patients might need to pay. This includes prescriptions, dental treatment, eyecare, travel to receive NHS treatment and wigs and fabric supports.

You can check if you’re eligible for help with these NHS costs using the NHS Business Service Authority's eligibility checker.

Low income scheme

If you aren’t automatically eligible but are on a low income, you could get help through the NHS low income scheme.
