Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge. From 1st April 2023:

If you are going to be abroad for more than 3 months then you are entitled to a sufficient supply of regular medications for pre-existing conditions, to get to your destination and find an alternative supply of that medication. Patients should check on arrangements for obtaining prescribed medications in the country they intend to visit before leaving the UK.
There is no explicit time limit on prescriptions for patients travelling abroad, but as patients would normally be removed from a GP’s list if absent for 3 months or more it is expected that prescriptions would not exceed 3 months. When doctors prescribe a drug, they are clinically and legally responsible for any results of that decision to prescribe. In view of this, it would not be considered good clinical practice for a doctor to prescribe large amounts of drugs to a patient going abroad for an extended period of time.
