People in NI would pay for prescriptions

1st July 2011

A survey of around 400 people has indicated that people in Northern Ireland would be prepared to pay a small charge for their prescriptions.

The new report published by the Patient and Client Council discovered that most of those people questioned would pay for drugs and be prepared to help support the health service in the current economic climate. However, some were still not prepared to pay for their prescriptions. Prescription charges in Northern Ireland were scrapped in April 2010.
