Protect free NHS prescriptions for over 60s

Petition Details

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.

Additional Information

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

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
