Most National Health Service (NHS) treatment is free but there can be charges for some things. You may be able to get help with NHS health costs if for example you're on a low income.
What is covered?

You may be able to get help with health costs like:

* NHS prescription charges
* NHS dental treatment, including check-ups
* sight tests
* vouchers towards the cost of glasses or contact lenses
* travel costs to and from hospital for NHS treatment under the care of a consultant
* travel costs for NHS treatment abroad
* wigs and fabric supports, such as abdominal and spinal supports
