Reps from all political parties in NI pledge to keep prescriptions free for people with long-term conditions
Representatives from all of the main political parties in Northern Ireland have committed to keeping prescriptions free for people with long-term conditions now and in the future.
At a public event held on 24th November in Stormont, attended by people with a wide range of long-term conditions, politicians from all parties have expressed their commitment to ensuring that people with long-term conditions do not have to pay prescription charges in the future.
Critical to this has been the voice of all those who took part in our survey earlier in the year and/or contacted their Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) on the issue. Thank you also to all the MLAs who have supported us.
With a Northern Ireland Assembly election just around the corner in May 2016, we strongly hope this commitment will be enshrined in manifestoes and policy documents.
