Help with NHS Costs

If you are on a low income, you may be able to get help with NHS costs through the NHS Low Income (LIS).


Help is available for eye care costs, dental costs, prescription costs, healthcare travel costs and for wigs and fabric supports providing your income and savings don't exceed the captial limit.   Dependent on your circumstances you may be entitled to full help or partial help.  For more detailed information about the scheme, the eligibility criteria and how to apply visit the NHS Choices website
