Working people struggle to afford multiple prescriptions

29 June 2017: Neal Patel, spokesperson for the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, spoke to BBC Radio Leeds about a new report from the Prescription Charges Coalition, which says one in three people of working age have not collected a prescription because of cost. “Pharmacists have difficult conversations with people who come with three or four items on a prescription and ask ‘Which one of these is the least important?’ as they can’t afford them all,” Patel told listeners. “We think that there should be no barrier between an individual and their medicines.”
