Don't take away free prescriptions for 60-65 year olds

The Government is planning to raise the age for free prescriptions in England from 60 to the State Pension age, which today is 66, and have launched a consultation on their plans to do so.

Will you email the Department of Health and Social Care, asking them to save free prescriptions? If thousands of us email them, we'll be hard to ignore.

Please visit the Age UK website and fill in your contact details. There's also an email for you,to send, but you can add your own message and edit it as you wish.

Have your say here.

Together we can save free prescriptions for 60 to 65 year olds.
