Today, 1st April 2016, the cost of prescriptions in England increased to £8.40 per item. For many people with long term conditions, this will have a serious financial impact.
We know that 1 in 3 people in England with a long-term condition have not collected medication due to the cost, and many cut down their dosage to save money. It’s clear this has an impact on their quality of life, and sometimes the results to their health can be extreme.
