    • Prescription (per item): £9
    • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
    • 3-month PPC: £29.10

    If you will have 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.  The charge for a single prescription item is £9, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
