Prescription charges

Since April 2009, patients undergoing treatment for cancer, the effects of cancer, or the effects of cancer treatment are entitled to exemption from prescription charges.

Affect on welfare benefits of a hospital stay

If you're getting certain welfare benefits, your entitlement may be affected if you go into hospital. See  the DWP leaflet and get in touch with the Big C welfare rights service

Travel costs involved if you choose a hospital further away

If your GP or the person who has referred you decides that you have a medical need for transport, patient transport services should be provided.

Otherwise if you're under the care of a consultant and you receive certain welfare benefits or are on a low income you may be entitled to help with your travel costs through the Healthcare Travel Cost Scheme (HTCS) See the NHS Choices "Help with Health Costs" leaflet

Finally, a Macmillian grant is a one-off payment for adults, young people or children with cancer, to cover a wide range of practical needs. This can include things such as heating bills, extra clothing or a much needed break. For more information see Macmillian How We Can Help Financial Support
