Freeze The Prescription Charge

NHS Prescription Charges - The Hibbs Lupus Trust

Living with a long-term health condition like lupus can significantly increase the everyday expenses we face. From heightened heating bills to powering assistive technology devices, the financial burden can be overwhelming.

Currently, each prescription item costs £9.65, and there’s talk of increasing this charge. For those of us reliant on medication to manage our conditions, this potential rise could mean vital treatments becoming unaffordable.

It’s distressing to note that in 2022, almost 1 in 10 individuals with long-term conditions had to forego their medication due to the costs involved.

You can make a difference by adding your name to an open letter urging the UK government to #FreezeTheCharge on prescription items in both 2024 and 2025. By joining forces with the Prescription Charges Coalition, we can advocate for a fairer system that ensures everyone has access to the medication they need.

Take action now by clicking the link below and filling out the form to sign the open letter. Your support can help alleviate the financial strain faced by those living with long-term health conditions such as lupus.
