Your chance to have your say about whether prescription charges should be reintroduced in Northern Ireland
A public consultation is underway in Northern Ireland which focuses on access to unapproved specialist medicines. A key part of this is a proposal to reintroduce prescription charges.
The deadline for responding to the consultation is 8 May.
See the posts below for further details, including our views and how to respond to the consultation, together with some ideas for aspects you might want to think about. Question 5 of the consultation questionnaire addresses prescription charges specifically.
We are very concerned that there has been no assessment of the impact these proposals may have on health outcomes and feel that the question is very leading. Please do take this opportunity to have your say and do let us know your views by contacting us through this site or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also have two more opportunities to attend public meeting in Antrim and Belfast (see below), where you can find out more about what is being planned and contribute your views.
