NHS Low Income Scheme

Posted by: marcia - Posted on:

We wanted to ensure that you’re aware of the following support for local people on a low income via the NHS Low Income scheme, with help to pay for:

  • NHS prescription charges
  • NHS dental treatment charges
  • the cost of sight tests, glasses and contact lenses
  • the cost of travelling to receive NHS treatment
  • NHS wigs and fabric supports (check with your hospital for their arrangements for supplying NHS wigs)

Alternatively, visit: https://services.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/apply-for-help-with-nhs-costs/apply-online

Non-urgent advice: Please Note

This is means based, but the team noted that things like an increase in mortgage costs will be taken into account, even if someone is in work.
