End to free prescription anomaly

Congratulations to the Welsh Health Minister on ending this discrepancy in the WAG’s free prescriptions policy.

Despite patients in Wales being exempt from paying £7.20 for their prescriptions for the past two years, anyone picking one up at a hospital in England still has to pay. This of course unfairly penalises those who have no choice but to receive treatment across the border.

Thankfully, come the Autumn, this situation will be a thing of the past. Now all we need is for England to fall in line with the rest of the UK and scrap prescription charges.
