Prescription and other NHS charges

Being over 60 I get free prescriptions but I also have an HC2 form which I have to apply for annually but which entitles me to free dental treatment, financial help with glasses etc.

To check to see if you can get free NHS treatments and prescriptions go to: https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/dont-get-caught-out-penalty-charges/check-you-tick?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIl--X05yl5QIVloXVCh0AOQ6cEAAYASAAEgJM7_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

    I have a pre-pay certificate now which costs me ten something a month, but is totally worth it.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
