Include more medical conditions that qualify for free prescriptions in England.
background
Currently there are only a small number of medical conditions that qualify for free prescriptions in England. Asthma, COPD and mental health are not included, they should be. Yet these conditions can threaten life, just like epilepsy and diabetic illness.
additional details
There is clear evidence that Asthma can become a life threatening illness without ongoing medical treatment by way of inhaled drugs and in some cases, oral medicines. Yet despite this, you must pay for these drugs either per item or via a PPC. The same is true for mental health medicines, which do save lives too. I’d like the government to include more chronic illnesses in the list of conditions that qualify for free prescriptions in England.
