Petition to end prescription charges for people with long-term conditions

Petition to end prescription charges for people with long-term conditions

In June it will be the 50 year anniversary of the medical exemption list, which grants people with some conditions free prescriptions and excludes others. The Prescription Charges Coalition is calling on the Government to urgently reform the prescription charge exemption criteria in England and make prescriptions free for people living with long-term conditions. “Managing a long-term condition is expensive and some people face a tough choice between paying for food and heating, or paying for essential medicine. Being unable to pay for medicine can lead to increased visits to GPs and hospitals, costing the NHS more.” You can sign their petition here .

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
