Sorry to be a pain in the proverbial by posting so soon again, but I was wondering if anyone knows if a PPC can be used for prescriptions which are presently awaiting collection from the pharmacy.
I haven't bought a PPC yet as I don't want to pay out for it only to be told that I still need to pay the full prescription costs, (which is what I was told this morning as it apparently doesn't apply to medicines already prescribed but not yet collected). Does anyone know if that's true?
The problem is I'm off sick at present with a back injury following an accident at work- I slipped on water!- & my salary is considerably less as a result- I'm a nursing assistant working for the beloved and beleaguered NHS so am missing pay for night duty etc. - so I haven't collected what I've been prescribed as I really can't afford everything At present there's four prescriptions which need collecting!! Not all urgent thankfully Any advice would be greatly appreciated x
