Now you have got me there, but I think that either Bonita or Anna are able to remove it. I am assuming that it is the one with the longer name that you want to delete. I will email them later when I get home from work and ask them.
Yes it does get very expensive in the initial days doesn't it. The one day my rads apt was overrunning by 2.5 hours so I hate to think what that would have cost me, no doubt in excess of £10.
Get back toyou later

Well I know at my hospital QE Birmingham when I was having radiotherapy my car parking was free regardless of whether I was driving or someone was driving me to the hospital, so it would be worth checking with yours to see if you do.
I got a letter from my bcn nurse when I was dignosed to show at the hospital if I was there for bc treatment so that parking was free xx
I was given a form to fill in from my BCC nurse on the day I was diagnosed and it is valid for 5 years for free prescriptions. Filled it in straight away and got a card within a week. I was previously paying D/D for prepaid prescriptions as I was on blood pressure meds before diagnosis so pleased I get this free, was paying 11 quid a month for prescriptions.
It's worth pointing out that the card is valid for five years, for all medication whether cancer related or not, and it is also valid even if you are no longer prescribed the cancer medication that you got the card for. ie free prescriptions for five years come what may
Oh for goodness sake, its not a difficult thing for them to do!! Hopefully you will get it sorted quickly.
Hi all, Yes Helena that is good advice. I picked my up whilst on a hospital visit. One of the nurses signed it for me, which saved me another trip to the GPs
I thought I would put this on as a separate post for those of you who will be embarking on hormone tablets as part of your treatment. You are entitled to a free NHS Medical Exemption Certificate, which you can get from your GP Surgery, you just complete it, give it back to the receptionist, they will get your GP to sign it and send it off for you. About 7 days later you will get a card through the post.
All you have to do is present this to the chemist when you collect your hormone tablets and any other medication you might be on as they are covered on this for as long as you are on hormone tablets.
