The Prescription Charges Coalition (led by Crohn’s and Colitis UK) is really pleased that Lib-Dem MP Sir Bob Russell raised many of the concerns of the Coalition during his debate on the impact of prescription charges for people with long-term conditions, name-checked our ‘Paying the Price’ report and highlighted many of the key findings. You can read the debate below.
As a result of Prescription Charges Coalition campaigning, Lib Dem MP Sir Bob Russell, has secured a Parliamentary debate on prescription charges on Wednesday evening. We need as many MPs as possible to speak, to show the Government how serious an issue this is.
