Re: [IPk] Prescription expemption renewal
I've had to renew mine every 3 years I think, When I was a kid my mum had an
old cardboard thing somewhere and when I got married I filled out a form &
got a new one, which I renewed when the chemist said it had expired.
This year is the first in 33yrs that I have had a letter through the post
warning me that it was about to expire & that it would be renewed
Maybe the system is starting to work efficiently (won't hold my breathe
