Prescription Charges

The British Medical Association has called on the government to make prescription charges free for everyone in England.

The Department of Health is currently reviewing the list of long-term conditions that are exempt from prescription charges. In its submission to the review, the BMA says that extending exemptions without a fundamental overhaul of the whole system will simply “create a new set of arbitrary ‘winners’ and ‘losers’”.

What do you think about this issue? Should everyone get free prescriptions? Or just those with long-term conditions?
