Prescription charges a 'barrier to medicine'

A UK campaign group claims increasing charges for prescription fees on the Island will have a detrimental effect in the long run.

It comes after the health minister announced plans to hike the price per item to £5 and scrap a number of free prescriptions.

The Prescription Charges Coalition believes it will act as a barrier to those in need of medicine.

Co-chair Matina Loizou says it will affect those who are already struggling.
