I've just had a card through the letter box, I owe the Postie £86.57 VAT on 200 1/2 grain of Armour I ordered from abroad, I actually take 3.5 grains so that's only a fraction of what I'll pay in a year.
I think there are many of us who can't tolerate Levo and have to self-medicate on T3 or NDT and there are many other patients with other conditions who can't get their meds on the NHS, I know 3 people who buy particular anti-histamines that are no longer available... we are all paying 20% VAT, if these meds were coming in to a registered UK Pharmacist, they would be zero rated....
We are being punished twice over.. once because our condition allows us free prescriptions but the NHS won't prescribe us what we need and then again because they charge us VAT.
I would like to start a change.org campaign to stop medication being vatable to patients.
