Although most NHS treatment is free, there are some costs patients might need to pay. This includes NHS prescriptions, NHS dental treatment, eyecare, travel to receive most NHS treatment and NHS wigs and fabric supports.
However, if you have a low income, you may be able to get help with these costs
The NHS Low Income Scheme covers costs for NHS prescriptions, NHS dental treatment, eyecare, travel to receive NHS care and more.
You can check if you’re eligible for help with these NHS costs using the eligibility checker at www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/check
