However for those patients who have to pay for their prescriptions and numerous items are required, it may be worthwhile purchasing a Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC) which works like a season ticket, so that the cost remains, however many prescriptions are required during the time period, which can be 3 months or 12 months' duration.
