Petition Protect free NHS prescriptions for over 60s

Continue to give free NHS prescriptions to over 60s. The Government is consulting on aligning the upper age exemption for NHS prescription charges with the State Pension age (SPA), which would render many people in their 60s ineligible.

More details

Over 60s are generally more susceptible to health issues, and after pension age, have less money available to pay large sums for repeated prescriptions.
