Buy an NHS Hormone Replacement Therapy Prescription Prepayment Certificate (HRT PPC)

Important information:

If you get prescriptions for something other than HRT medicine, a Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) that covers all NHS prescriptions may be better for you.

Use this service to buy an HRT PPC.

If you pay for NHS prescribed HRT medicine 3 or more times in 12 months, an HRT PPC could save you money.

Each item on an NHS prescription usually costs £9.90. You can buy an HRT PPC for a one-off payment of £19.80 (the cost of two items).

This covers you for an unlimited number of certain HRT prescriptions for 12 months.

Before you start

You'll need:

  • the name of your HRT medicine to check if its covered - you can find this on your prescription or the medicine packaging
  • a valid credit or debit card to pay for the HRT PPC

HRT PPCs are not refundable so make sure you need to buy one before doing so.

If you are applying on behalf of someone else, fill in the application using their details rather than your own.

You cannot get an HRT PPC by post using this online service. If you need it by post, you can buy one from some pharmacies.
