Help with NHS costs

Depending on the circumstances of you and your family, you may be able to get help with health costs.

You could get help with:

  • NHS prescriptions
  • NHS dental treatment
  • Wigs and fabric supports
  • Sight tests and access to optical vouchers to help with the cost of glasses or contact lenses
  • Assistance with the costs of travel to an NHS appointment on referral by a primary care practitioner (eg doctor, dentist or optician) 

Find out if you're entitled to a free NHS sight test or an optical voucher to reduce the cost of glasses or contact lenses. If you're not eligible for NHS-funded sight tests or optical vouchers, you'll have to cover the costs yourself.
