Help to Get You Online

Local residents are being offered training and support to get online to manage their health and wellbeing. Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria are taking a digital van into communities to demonstrate some of the options on offer for people locally, provide demonstrations and answer questions about using computers, phones and tablets to get online.  The van will visit Morecambe Morrisons - Hilmore Way, LA4 4EW from 10am until 4pm on Tuesday 13 November 2018.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines.  Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.

NHS charges

From 1 April 2018, the charges are:

  • Prescription (per item): £8.80;
  • 3-month prescription prepayment certificates (PPC): £29.10;
  • 12-month PPC: £104.00;
  • If you will need to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC;
    PPC telephone advice line 0300 330 1341;
  • General Public - Buy or Renew a PPC On-line.
