Free medicines to manage type 2 diabetes
People that have type 2 diabetes do not have to pay for their prescription. In order to get free prescriptions, you have to fill out a form to receive an exemption certificate. This can be obtained by following three simple steps:
- Complete the form that your GP will give you.
- You receive your exemption certificate in the post within a week.
- Show the certificate to the pharmacy when you hand them your prescriptions.
Please keep your receipts for any diabetes medication that you paid for before receiving your exemption certificate as this money can be claimed back.
