Prescribing

Scrapping prescription charges can save money

New research by York Health Economics Consortium shows that scrapping prescription charges for people with Parkinson’s and inflammatory bowel disease would save the NHS money. The Prescription Charges Coalition (PCC) is calling on the Government to urgently reform the prescription exemption criteria in England, and make prescriptions free for people living with long term conditions. Disability Rights UK is a member of the Coalition.

Sign up to the PCC mailing list if you’d like to get involved.
