An interesting Update.
I was reading of the xemption certificate for prescription and I remember I ticked cancer and other. I asked the receptionist at the GP and she said that the Dr had crossed cancer and wrote my diagnosis.
So I read the part about the cancer part in detail on the guidance note for GP's when they sign these forms and it specifically said that it was not an exhaustive list and that it was how they understood it to be. It also said that the effects of cancer treatment (past or present) and side effects of it are included. So my answer/reaction to that statement means we having vasculitis should get prescriptions free basedon the fact that we have all most likely been on cyclophosomide at one point - which is a form of chemotherapy. Furthermore we will be taking medicine to substitute the cyclophosomide once we finish sessions. I know mycophenolate is one that is used for cancer patients....and vasculitis is an immune disease. We are all on some form of immune suppressant and it's treated similar to cancer/aids (as I've been told)
Given the above.....surely this defines vasculitis patients as being eligible for free prescriptions???
I may make another application this tIme asking my consultant to complete last time I asked he said ask my GP. going to ask him again.
