Recently released prisoners

In 2008, there were amendments so that people living in England, who have just been released from prison, do not have to pay. This only applies to the prescription issued by the prison doctor, until the person can register with a GP. 

To be exempt, their form must have ‘HMP’ printed in the prescriber address area on the front of the prescription form. In this instance a signature is not required on the back of the prescription form.
