Students on a low income may be eligible for free or cheap(er) prescriptions, as well as other NHS services eg going to the Dentist. You need to apply on a HC1 application form to see if you qualify. If you live with a partner, their income is included in the assessment. For more information and an application form follow this link: www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcosts/Pages/nhs-low-income-scheme.aspx
The scheme isn’t just for students, it is for people with low incomes generally.
Alternatively, contact the Student Advice Service at your campus for more advice and information
