Help with health costs

Did you know that there are services out there that can help with costs relating to health?

Transport to health appointments

Yorkshire Ambulance Service provides NHS-funded transport for eligible people who are unable to travel to their healthcare appointments by other means due to their medical condition.

Cost of dental treatment

Dental treatment can be expensive. Find out if you are entitled to free NHS dental treatment.

Cost of prescriptions

The NHS prescription charge is currently £9.90 for each prescription item, meaning there is a charge for each drug or medical appliance on your prescription. In England, most working-age adults have to pay prescription charges, however some people are entitled to free NHS prescriptions. If you regularly pay prescription charges, a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) could save you money

Affordable warmth

Living in a cold and damp home increases the risk of asthma and bronchitis in children, as well as low weight gain in babies, slower growth, slower development and higher levels of hospital admissions for the young. If you’re struggling to pay your energy bills you could be eligible for help.

Support for carers

Time for Carers can provide £250 for eligible people in Leeds to have a break from a caring role.
