Document Which start date should I use for my Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC)?

You should start your PPC from the date you will collect / receive your medication from the pharmacy / dispensing doctors; not the date your prescription is prescribed or the date you take it in to the pharmacy / dispensing doctors.

If you've already paid for an NHS prescription and have obtained an FP57 receipt to claim a refund, your PPC needs to cover the date on the FP57.

A PPC can be backdated / post-dated up to 1 month from the date we receive the application, if you're applying online and trying to either backdate or post-date by a full month, you may receive an error message, this will be because it's 1 month (less a day). so for an application made on the 17th February for example, you could backdate it to 18th January or post-date in to the 16th March.

It's your responsibility to ensure that you're covered for any prescriptions you obtain free of charge.
