The UK Government has announced bad news for NHS patients in England, but Wales is offering a helping hand.
From 01.04.2019, prescriptions in England will cost an extra 20p, which will take the £8.80 price per item up to £9. However, those who live just over the border from Wales, can get free prescriptions if they use a Welsh pharmacy.
The change only applies to patients in England, as prescriptions are free in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
