Cystic Fibrosis Trust comment on RCP survey on cost of living
Clare Corbett, Direct of External Affairs at Cystic Fibrosis Trust, said:
“The cost-of-living crisis is putting even more pressure on people with cystic fibrosis, who already face high costs as a result of their condition, with long stays in hospital causing disruption to work, prescription charges for vital daily medications, and rising prices for the additional high-calorie food they need to stay healthy. Our data shows 87% of people with cystic fibrosis are worried about the cost of living, and 35% worry about money every day.
“As the research published today highlights, these concerns are reflected across the membership of the Inequalities in Health Alliance. It is vital that the Government responds with a comprehensive health inequalities strategy.”
