Most NHS treatment is free at the point of use. This means you don’t need to worry about paying when using many our services. However, there are some treatment areas where most residents might need to make a payment.
These NHS areas are: prescriptions; the dentist; sight tests; glasses or contact lenses; wigs; fabric supports – things like surgical bras, support tights and spinal supports; and travel for treatment.
However, it is important to know that you might be able to get help and pay less, or nothing at all, depending on your circumstances.
