Take action against UK prescription charges

We wish it were an April fool, but it isn't. Once again, prescription charges have been raised. It's time for this to stop. It's time to take action. Join the Prescription Charges Coalition in writing to your MP asking for exemption from these harmful fees for all people with long-term health conditions.

This web tool makes writing to your MP easy, and you can personalise it with your own story to make it even more effective. Act now to ease the burden.

Not going to happen - this argument has been raging since the 80s.

Doctors deliberately put of diagnosing people with diabetes (mostly non-white people affected) and thyroid disease (mostly women affected) to avoid increasing the numbers of people entitled to free prescriptions in England, so they aren't going to add other long term health conditions.
