A is a single lady with severe rheumatoid arthritis and emphysema who is struggling to cover her prescription costs despite working part-time. She has had her benefits stopped for 5 weeks whilst waiting for an assessment for universal credit and is having to limit the amount of medication she takes due to lack of funds. A would be very grateful for a pre-payment prescription card which would greatly help her situation.
