People with long term conditions like Fibro are still forced to pay for the prescriptions they need to stay well. We need your help to campaign for an end to this unfairness.
This week, the Prescription Charges Coalition has published a new report, called Paying the Price. We have found out that people with conditions, such as fibromyalgia, heart disease, arthritis and many others, are having to choose between food, clothing, bills or prescriptions. It is wrong that people are stopping or rationing their prescriptions because of an outdated and arbitrary system. Charging is also short-sighted as it makes it more difficult for people to manage their conditions effectively, leading to more severe health problems and extra costs to the NHS and society as a whole.
For more information on the report, see the article below:
If you live in England, please write to your MP today, asking them to call for an end to prescription charges for people with long term conditions. It only takes two minutes. With your help we can show politicians that there is widespread support for ending this injustice. To make it easy for you to email your MP, you can use the e-Action link below:
Thank you for campaigning with us!
