Can I get a wig on prescription through the NHS? Possibly. Local NHS organisations decide which services they spend their budget on. In some local areas, this means funding wig provision, commonly two synthetic wigs per year. In other local areas, wig provision is not funded by the NHS meaning you will not be able to access a wig. If you can access wig provision via the NHS, prescription charges may be applicable in England whilst in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland a prescription charge will not be payable. Human hair wigs are not routinely offered via the NHS although some people with alopecia are able to access human hair wigs via NHS provision. To find out if you can access wigs via the NHS and what your local provision looks like, you will need to ask your dermatologist.
