Yes, the charges are for England, it's all free in Wales. I might have to move there rather than just have holidays there!

Hi iam a pharmacy tech so hope this helps. Your child will recieve free scrips if they are 16, 17 or 18 and in fulltime education beyond that your child may be qualify for a medical exemption card, the form for this is obtained from your GP. There are set criteria for this so depends of your childs disabilities or medical conditions. Pop into your local pharmacy and ask for a leaflet entitled 'help with prescription costs' this has some basic info but has a phone number you can ring for advice x
were all angels in waiting!!

Thank you for that, I read the bit on the NHS site but still didn't realise it was 18 and in education, I thought they still got it at 19. I'll have to remember that for my oldest lad.
