On 20th October, the BBC's Rip Off Britain investigated why England is the only home nation to pay for prescription charges. The programme looked at case studies from people with long-term conditions in England and Scotland. It featured the Prescription Charges Coalition Co-Chair, Matina Loizou from Parkinson's UK, discussing the negative effects of prescription charges on people with long-term conditions in England.
