What you can do to support the campaign

What can you do to help build a campaign in support of the abolition of prescription charges?

  • Add your name to the statement/petition (email us at swindontuc@btinternet.com ). You can give us some brief comments explaining why you support it, if you wish
  • Get your union branch/organisation to support it
  • Download the pcpetition and collect signatutes at your workplace/union branch etc
  • Download the pcbriefing to circulate
  • If you have personal or family experience of the difficulties associated with having to pay for multiple prescriptions, let us know. We report them anonymously

    Please add my name, it is unfair that I have to pay for my Blood Pressure medicine, when there is no hope that I will no longer need it!

    I don’t mind paying for ad-hoc medicines, but a quarterly charge of £7.10 is unacceptable for life-long medication!.

  2. Dominic Says:

    All prescriptions should be free across the UK. They are free in Wales and are only £3 in Scotland and will be free next year. Why is it different in England? I have been on Asthma and blood pressure pills for the last fifteen years, I am not over weight or a smoker. My family has one wage (as child care is prohibitively expensive) and the costs of my prescriptions are an added burden.
