Prescription Charges Review: The Gilmore Report

Prescription charges review: implementing exemption from prescription charges for people with long term conditions.



In 2008 Professor Ian Gilmore, President of the Royal College of Physicians, was asked to lead an independent review on how a prescription charge exemption for people with long term conditions should be implemented, including how it would be phased in. The Government is now publishing the review, which was submitted to previous ministers in November 2009.
