Prescription charges cut in Scotland1st April 2009
Prescription charges in Scotland have fallen from £5 to £4 as part of the process of the Scottish Government moving towards abolishing them by 2011.
Next year they will fall by another £1. Prescriptions are already free for everyone in Wales and will be free in Northern Ireland by 2010, but charges in England have gone up from £7.10 to £7.20. However, charges for cancer patients will be scrapped in England this year, with other long-term conditions to follow afterwards.
