Free dental checkups and sight tests for cancer patients

 

Responsible department: Department of Health

All cancer patients should receive free dental check-ups and free sight tests for five years, i.e. during all treatment, as per the prescription exemption certificate received. Especially as chemotherapy is known to cause dental problems, and tamoxifen is known to cause sight problems.

Signed it! It seems strange that these tests/check ups aren’t included on the medical exemption card. Considering that some people have reduced or no income whilst going through cancer treatment and recover it would really help.
