paying for HRT prescription

I’m sure this has been asked before, but it has just occurred to me that I may have to pay for ongoing HRT once my 3yr exemption runs out.
I’m 32 and gave been told I will have to take HRT until I’m 51. I had a radical hysterectomy and removal of ovaries on 6th January. I’m now wondering if there are financial implications relating to prescription charges even though I have to take HRT to lower risk of osteoporosis etc rather than through personal choice.
Could anyone please enlighten me?!
Thanks :slight_smile:

I'm sure it's five years...mine is def five years! We will likely have to pay, but can get three months supply at a time, and that is classed as one item and therefore only one prescription charge. H x

Thanks for your reply! I've checked my exemption card and you are right, it's 5 years. I've done a bit of research on the internet and it seems like maybe it is at the GP's discretion if they deem it to be a treatment needed as a result of cancer but I will certainly mention it to my doctor when I have my 3 month check up.
