Is anyone aware of new rules regarding the prescription charges of only 1 inhaler per prescrition with effect May 2012, whereby any drugs can only be dispensed for upto 28days at a time?
I have suffered with asthma for over 25 years and use two types on inhaler whereby I need a minimum of 3 prescriptions per calendar year, containing 2 inhalers per prescription.
This equates to a minimum yearly cost of £21 for 6 inhalers.
Upon visiting my doctors earlier this month, they have now reviewed my asthma, changed one of the inhalers I use, whereby I now need 1 inhaler per month per prescription, taking my yearly total to over £100 when I take into account the two inhalers I need!
Is anyone aware of this or know what I can do about it?
