For dispensing GPs, this contains the following information:
Teams are reminded that patients who are pregnant or have had a baby in the last 12 months need a maternity exemption certificate. Patients with certain medical conditions need a medical exemption certificate before they are entitled to free NHS prescriptions.

NHS BSA has published a patient exemption checking guide.
