Reading recent posts it sounds like Raynauds/Scleroderma patients (I refuse to be a sufferer) are preparing for our worst time of year. Our clothing & heating bill must be substantially higher than most folks. I would call upon the association to petition the government for us to receive the max winter fuel allowance of £300 disregarding the number if bedrooms we have. The cost of replacing worn out thermal wear that gets constant wear in the winter & extra kit that we have to keep in cars/office, could be recognised via tax codes or by being VAT free at least. getting it on prescription might be another option. A special Medical tariff from the energy companies perhaps? Let's face it with the obscene profits they make they can afford it. What do other contributors to this site think?
