To help patients check their entitlement to free NHS prescriptions, we issued a poster and a supply of booklets to all pharmacies and dispensing GP practices in May 2018.
Following a number of requests for versions that can be shown on waiting room screens, these resources are now available in PowerPoint format:
We have also worked with national charity CHANGE to produce an Easy Read version of the booklet. CHANGE’s inclusive approach to design ensures that the information is accessible for people who struggle with literacy, including people with learning disabilities and migrant communities.
You can also find these materials, along with the original versions, at www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/freeprescriptions under ‘Resources for dispensers’.
If you have any feedback on these materials, email your comments to email@example.com.
