Prescription Charges

Volume 453: debated on Monday 20 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) whether Asthma UK will be consulted during her review of prescription charges; (101329)

(2) what plans she has to consult with patient groups about prescription charges.

We have already been approached by Asthma UK and some other organisations that wish to make representations as part of the review of prescription charges. We would welcome comments on possible options for changing the current prescription charge arrangements that are cost-neutral for the national health service from all organisations that wish to make representations.
