Millions of over 60s face paying for NHS prescriptions, unless we act now. Sign the emergency petition demanding the Department of Health drop their plans to make over 60s pay for NHS prescriptions.
Health groups have warned that the charges could "leave many patients in England unable to afford medication, intensifying existing health inequalities". 2.4 million people could be affected now, and most of us will be in future. Free prescriptions for over 60s could become a thing of the past, and a the thin end of the wedge of creeping NHS charges. Take action to protect free prescriptions now!
