Prescription charges in England go up to £8.20 tomorrow - having risen for 35 out of the last 36 years.
We have condemned the increase, which is likely to worsen the significant impact charges already have on people with long-term conditions in England. The current system of exemptions for prescription charges has not changed since 1968 and is outdated, arbitrary and unfair.
The Prescription Charges coalition is calling for everyone with a long-term condition to be exempt from charges so that they can manage their condition effectively and get on with their lives.
