Prescription charge plan unveiled
Scotland's health minister is expected to reveal her detailed plans to abolish prescription charges.
It is thought that the charge will be stopped immediately for people with chronic health conditions.
Nicola Sturgeon is expected to say that they will be phased out for everyone else over the next three years.
The move is similar to developments in Wales where prescription charges were gradually reduced from 2000 and abolished altogether this year.
In Scotland, the cost of phasing out the charges over the next three years could be about Â£97m.
In January last year, MSPs voted to keep prescription charges, after a debate at Holyrood.
A motion to abolish the charge was proposed by the Scottish Socialists and supported by the SNP and the Greens, but it was defeated by 77 votes to 44.
