Document How do I renew my Medical exemption certificate?

You need to see your GP and ask them to complete a new FP92A application form.

We'll send you a letter (MED02) reminding you that your Medical exemption certificate is due for renewal 1 calendar month before your current certificate expires if you're under the age of 60. We send this to the most recent address on your record, if you've moved and not informed us directly, your MED02 will have been sent to your old address.

If you've turned 60, you won't receive a MED02 renewal letter as you're now automatically entitled to free NHS prescriptions and no longer require an exemption certificate.

It's not possible to renew your Medical exemption certificate any other way.
