Prescription charges coalition

NRAS is campaigning to scrap prescription charges for people in England with long-term conditions.

Rheumatoid arthritis is for life. A chronic disease with no cure. The quality of my life is dependent on a cocktail of 10 different drugs. With them, I can almost live a normal life, without them, I would be a burden on society, needing constant long term care at a huge cost to the state.

England is the only nation of the United Kingdom in which people still pay prescription charges. For people living with RA, JIA and other long-term conditions, this can be a serious financial burden.  

If you have an experience you would like to share relating to prescription charges or would like to support this campaign, please email Policy & Communications Manager, with the message subject ‘NRAS prescription charges campaign’.
