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.

If your dental practice is in Scotland or Wales

In Scotland, you get free NHS dental check-ups, treatments, and appliances if you're aged 18 to 25.

In Wales, you get free NHS dental check-ups if you're aged 18 to 24 or over 60.

We'll update the eligibility checker with these changes in the coming weeks.

It should take about 3 minutes to check.
