I can understand why you would have to pay for your prescriptions if you were on full pay from work. What I fail to understand is why you WERE on full pay when you were not able to work?? It may of been more advisable for you to of been signed off from work and to of claimed the benefits that you have spent your life paying for and are entitled to.
I was never offered a Macmillan nurse but was given amazing financial help from their benefits section who were the most fantastic help. I would recommend anyone who joins our little club to contact them, they really do know the in's and out's of a ducks behind!!
