Free Prescriptions for Scleroderma Patients.

This petition had 163 supporters

Scleroderma is a rare, chronic disease of the immune system, blood vessels and connective tissue. it is an auto immune condition, meaning the immune system becomes overactive and attacks healthy tissue in the body. excess collagen can affect the skin, joints, tenders and internal organs. it causes scarring and stops the affected parts of the body functioning normally.

Prescription charges have risen almost every year and currently stand at £8.60 per item as of 1st April 2017.

Scleroderma patients struggle with paying prescription, prescription charges are a barrier to accessing medicines for many people with long term conditions. vast majority of patients sometimes missed pills or taken lower dose, or not taken their medication due to cost.

Exempting people with Scleroderma would improve individual quality of life, reduce health service costs including hospital admissions.

Please support my campaign by joining this petition to stop prescription charges to Scleroderma Patients.
