If you are a diabetic, you can get an exemption card that allows you free medicine.
I'm guessing this was originally done due to the amount of Metformin needed by Diabetics which would cost an absolute fortune.
However, why should they also be entitled to any other medicines for free? especially those that are unrelated to Diabetes?
I have to pay over £8 per item on my prescriptions. Diabetes does not necessarily make a person too poor to pay for their prescriptions.
This needs to change. Perhaps only allow Diabetes-related medicine for free?
