I live in Portsmouth, UK, area and here you have no choice where you take your wig prescription. It goes direct to Browns Hairdressers at the McMillan suite for cancer patients at QA Hospital. The environment is totally wrong - like an office (with a large cupboard for wigs.) I should be able to go somewhere that can offer me a better choice/variety/service and more importantly, better value for money. As they have been given the monopoly, their prices have increased and now extortionate! With their surplus charge together with prescription charge, it would cost me double to get my usual wigs from my usual supplier Thought prescriptions were to help us save us money. What about the Patient Freedom of Choice?
