The NHS in Scotland provides Medical, Optical, Pharmacy and Dental services. There is a charge for receiving treatment from two of these services (Dental & Optical) unless the patient qualifies for an exemption from paying them. This section of the website aims to provide clarity to both patients and practitioners and relevant information can be accessed from the menu bar at the top left of this page.
Patient Entitlement Help
The Patient Entitlement Help video will help you check to see if you are exempt from paying Dental and/or Ophthalmic charges.
