Sajid Javid – 2022 Comments on Freezing Prescription Charges

The comments made by Sajid Javid, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 15 May 2022.

Whilst we can’t completely prevent these rises, where we can help – we absolutely will. This is why I am freezing prescription charges to help ease some of these pressures and put money back in people’s pockets.
