I been left in a awkward situation with the Prescription service. I have severe eosinophils Asthma, without my medication I can die. So I tired to renew my PPC and found out that they now wont accept direct debit from me. I can just about afford the £10.40 I been paying in the past. I do not qualify for any low income and found out today that the NHS PPC have not been taking the direct debit out of my account. As a result I am now being told I need to pay them £83 up front to clear the account then only pay by Debit or Credit card up front. That I cannot do. I just dont have the money to be able to afford this. I was sent two letters stating that there was an issue with my direct debit and on both occasions I responded. I heard nothing since. I am so shocked that they left me in this situation. I cant afford my medication and I feel like they left me in a catch 22 position. If i dont take my medication I die and if i cant afford it I die. I just dont know what I can do. I dont know who to go to or ask.
