Do I qualify for the NHS low income scheme?

You can qualify if you receive certain benefits or have a valid tax credit exemption certificate, or if you receive income-related Employment and support allowance or Pension credit guarantee.

You need to have capital under £16,000 (£23,250 if living in a care home) to qualify.
