Check what help you could get to pay for NHS costs

Although most NHS treatment is free, there is usually a charge for:

  • NHS prescriptions
  • NHS dental check-ups and treatment
  • sight tests
  • new glasses or contact lenses
  • repairing or replacing glasses or contact lenses
  • NHS wigs
  • NHS fabric supports – things like surgical bras, support tights and spinal supports
  • travel for NHS treatment

You could be entitled to help with these costs depending on your circumstances.

It should take about 3 minutes to check.
