Hi

You sound like you should qualify for medical exemption, which is when you’re not able to get to the chemists by yourself. There’s a form which your GP needs to complete on your behalf. If you call your GP surgery they should be able to tell you more about it.

Hi Jenny!

the answer is no, you don’t have to pay (except for LDN) if you are on ESA.

take care Peter xx
