People with certain medical conditions can get free NHS prescriptions if they have a valid medical exemption certificate (MEDEX).

If you're entitled to a certificate because of your medical condition, an FP92A application form will be completed by your doctor or health professional. This will be sent to:

NHS Business Services Authority
Medical Exemption Certificates
Bridge House
152 Pilgrim Street
Newcastle upon Tyne

If you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland and want to apply for a MEDEX for free NHS prescriptions in England, speak to your GP and ask them to complete form EC92A (Scotland), FP92W (Wales), or HC11B (Northern Ireland).

You will receive your certificate within 10 working days of us receiving your application.

Check what help you could get to pay for NHS costs and apply online.
