Please Help by signing the Prescription Charges Coalition Petition
Freeze the cost of prescriptions – please sign our petition now!
The Prescription Charges Coalition, of which the charity I am a Trustee of, has been campaigning for a number of years for prescriptions to be made free to people with all long term medical conditions.
In September 2010, the Government stated that they would not introduce free prescriptions but would look at ways to introduce ‘more fairness’ in the system.
We believe the Government has an opportunity to do more to help people with long term conditions who are struggling to afford their medicines in the current difficult economic climate.
This is why the Prescription Charges Coalition is now calling on the Government to freeze the cost of prescriptions until the end of the Parliament.
As many people with long term conditions use Prescription Prepayment Certificates (PPCs) to spread the cost of their medicines and save money, the Prescription Charges Coalition is also calling for the Government to continue last year’s freeze on the cost of PPCs until the end of the Parliament.
Finally, we want the Government to work towards making prescriptions free for people with long term medical conditions in the future.
I hope you can help by signing the Prescription Charges Coalition's e-petition:
You can also help spread the word by asking your friends to do the same. I am sure that many of you are affected by the cost of prescriptions and would benefit if these changes were adopted. Thanks.
