Wasted medicine is everyones's responsibility and there are small changes you can make to help reduce the amount of medicines wasted. These savings could be reinvested into more front line care and services for the benefit of all.
There are a number of ways that you can help and save money for Stockport:
Extensive exemption and remission arrangmeents protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription, dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successvie 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 woho need extensive medication.
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 PCC.
