>Prescription Relief

>The Liberal Democrat pledge on prescription charges is set to bring relief to anybody who currently has to pay large amounts of money for prescribed drugs for chronic conditions not covered by current exemptions. The plans mean that the maximum anyone will pay will be one prescription charge per month. Everything above that will be free to all, and those people currently exempt will pay nothing at all.

I have been in contact with a fair number of people through my work whose lives have been blighted by illness and who currently have to find the money to find essential prescribed drugs. This move would make life easier for them.

Coupled with that is a pledge to give pharmacists greater powers to prescribe so that GP’s time is freed up to concentrate on those who really need it.
