Sickle Cell and Thalassemia is an inherited blood disorder. Although there is a lot of treatment out there to manage the disease, there is no affordable cure. People with SCD and Thalassemia will live with this disease for the rest of their lives. So they should be exempt from paying for prescriptions just like diabetic patients are. I am involved with convincing un-developed nations in subsiding medication for people with Sickle Cell. How can I do this, if the United Kingdom are still expecting patients to pay for their prescriptions.
