Document What help does my Maternity exemption certificate entitle me to?

A Maternity exemption certificate entitles you to receive free NHS prescriptions.

Being pregnant doesn't entitle you to free NHS prescriptions, you must have a Maternity exemption certificate.

As a pregnant woman, you're also entitled to free NHS dental treatment which is available until your baby turns 1 year old, it's your pregnancy that entitles you to free NHS dental treatment not the Maternity exemption certificate.
