Stevenson Highlights Abolition Of Prescription Charges In Portsoy Visit

SNP candidate for Banffshire & Buchan Coast Stewart Stevenson visited Portsoy chemist shop George Ellis Pharmacy to highlight the benefit the scrapping of prescription charges will bring to people in Scotland. Mr Stevenson met with pharmacy owner Vinay Ruparelia and his staff during his visit.

Speaking in Portsoy, Mr Stevenson said:

“Last week, Scotland became a fairer society. As a result of electing an SNP Government four years ago, prescription charges have been abolished and we can herald in a new era of health care free at the point of need.

"The SNP is committed to protecting Scottish values and delivering the policies that make Scotland fairer. As of now, the 600,000 people in Scotland on incomes of £16 000 or less no longer have to pay for prescriptions.

“The SNP are the only party with a record of commitment to no prescription charges. Under Labour prescriptions cost nearly £7.00, under the Tories and Lib Dems in England they are £7.40.

“The abolition of prescription charges shows what an SNP Government working for Scotland can do."
