- 10 Downing Street, David Cameron
- United Kingdom
Fact: 5.4 million people in the UK have asthma.
Fact: 2204 deaths from asthma in the UK (2008)
Fact: On average 3 people die aday or 1 person every 8 hours from asthma.
Fact: There were over 79,794 emergency hospital admissions for asthma in the UK in 2008.
The 5.4 million people in the UK living with asthma are or will have to pay for their prescriptions, prescriptions cost a lot when you need a couple of items every month.
Everyone that has asthma didn't ask for it, so why should we have to pay for it. Some people have to stop taking medication as prices are to much to pay, this is affecting their health and could lead to death.
We the undersigned, call on David Cameron to allow free prescriptions for asthmatics.
Our last prime minister promised free prescriptions for all asthmatics but failed to deliver, it is unfair on us who are suffering from a long term illness that we have to pay.
Other medical conditions e.g diabetes, thyroid, get free prescriptions so why shouldn't we?
