NHS Exemption card?
Mar 1, 2009 8:19AM
Got my card but is it just for Priscriptions from the doctors or can you use it for the dentist and opticans. Is there anything else you can use it for?

sammi i got a form from mw a couple months ago, ask her when you next go or just go to doctors and get one then you send the form off and they send you the card back.

i got mine at my booking in appointment at 10 weeks (the forms) then the card came a couple of weeks later

in the letter that came with my exemption card it says doctors and dentists, not opticians. i only think u can get those optcians and glasses vouchers if ur on an income related benefit, ie income support, income based job seekers

New to the group, hello!
Hi I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. I'm new to this group, but not new to ttc. I've got children to my ex, but my husband and I are ttc our first baby together. I hope it's ok that I will be posting with lots of questions as it's been a long time since I was ttc (9 years, eek!!) so I've forgotten a lot of things. Babydust to all!! 😊 x
