Rejected petition Make all prescriptions in England Free

People work very hard, sometimes too hard and become ill very quickly, with the rise of stomach bugs and flues, and other severe illnesses, it’s only fair that People in England shouldn’t have to pay for Prescriptions to be able to treat themselves. As prices keep rising! Health will deteriorate.

More details

People on benefits or financial support receive prescriptions for free, however working people have to pay £9.00 for a prescription and that’s for each time they become ill. Health will deteriorate if prescription prices aren’t dropped or removed. Some people can’t afford to keep paying for medication and sometimes it’s for a matter of urgency. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland do not have to pay for there’s. So why should we in England? NHS comes free healthcare but is it? Remove the prices.
