The Prescription Charges Coalition is pleased to announce that the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers (Usdaw) is also supporting campaigning to end unfair, outdated and inequitable prescription charges for people with long-term conditions.
Usdaw representative Lorraine Haves explains: "The Annual Delegate Meeting of Usdaw is an opportunity for representatives of the union to bring subjects for debate which affect our members and their families.
This year I chose the very worthwhile cause of lobbying the Government to give free prescriptions to those people requiring long-term medication. The proposition was extremely well received and was unanimously carried and it will now be taken to parliament where hopefully they will finally understand how essential it is that people requiring long-term medication get this for free."
If you are a member of a union or similar group, why not take the opportunity to get your organisation supporting our call for an end to prescription charges for people with long-term conditions? We'd be very happy to hear from you!
