Cancer Patients Exemption From Prescription Charges – NPA Reaction

January 21, 2009 at 5:00 pm Leave a comment

The NPA has welcomed the abolition of prescription charges in England for people with cancer.

NPA Chief Executive, John Turk, comments: “The NPA has long argued for a simpler and fairer system for patients. Medicines are core to the treatment of most long term conditions, and we do not wish anyone to be deterred from accessing vital medication on grounds of cost.”

John Turk added: “People with long term conditions should not have to rely on savings in the drugs budget to finance any changes resulting from the review. However, we hope that there will now be a renewed focus on reducing medicines waste and more effective medicines use, in particular through the roll-out of repeat dispensing and pharmacy-based concordance schemes.”
