New survey on impact of prescription charges launched
The Prescription Charges Coalition is conducting a short survey to determine the potential impact of prescription charges on the working lives of people in England with long-term conditions.
The survey follows earlier research by the coalition, a lobbying group made up of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and 21 patient support organisations, which highlighted a number of issues and difficulties faced by those with long-term conditions who pay for their prescriptions.
The coalition is campaigning for all three main political parties to commit to ending prescription charges for people with long-term conditions in their election manifestos.
The survey must be completed by 31 January 2014.
