Prescription charged

If someone has a long term illness they get their prescription for that illness free. But they then also get all their other prescriptions free. So if they need a week of antibiotics for an illness NOT related to their long term problem they get this free! Madness! Keep long term prescriptions free and have the other precriptions charged for. 

Why the contribution is important

It will save money

    There should be a change of approach to charging - people should be asked to explain why they can't pay for prescriptions rather than simply ticking a box. All pharmacies now have a private consultation room that could be used if necessary.

    I would agree that just because a person has a long term illness this should not make all other charges null and void.
