Cancer treatment prescription reminder...........

Found 9th Feb 2009
First post so please be gentle!

Wasn't sure if this should be in Freebies as its limited to certain people.........Please move if so.

From April 1st (no April Fool) all patients receiving treatment for cancer are entitled to free prescriptions, you can apply now at your GP surgery using a VERY simple form.A prepayment certificate will be sent which is valid for 5 years on all prescriptions cancer related or not and can continue to be used for the life of the certificateeven if treatment is no longer being given for cancer.

Hope this helps someone as treatment costs add up and every little helps.

Me thinks someone is talking ploppy chops!

And so they should be free!

Thanks for the info, I'm sure some will find it useful.

oh, and welcome to HUKD

so they should they have to pay enough transport costs and have enough on their plate without paying for prescriptions. I'm lucky living in wales I get my prescriptions free x x x x x x

You're right, it is serious. But some of us enjoy life and have a sense of humour that we enjoy. Not everyone should stand to attention with ears back on what someone else considers a serious topic. Relax and chill out a little OP.

Many people who have and are dying of cancer still want to enjoy every last breath of fresh air and losing several family members to it including my father in the last 2 years I am well aware of importance of the issue.......lighten up.

Geez, I wish I hadnt repped you now. :roll:

Cheers guys! Its being so close to serious and terminal conditions that makes people enjoy life and want to enjoy life so much more coz they realise that when the thought of the loss of life hits home...everything else falls into insignificance.....

Its tragic, its sad, its unfair and its emotional.......but it also happens and nobody can stop it.

I give to many charities every year, especially Cancer Research which I give a few quid to every month.

Although I can understand and realise seriousness...I prefer to see the enjoyable and positive side of things.....and regardless of the circumstances I'd rather laugh than cry....after all, it takes dozens of muscles to frown....but less than a dozen to smile
