The Campaign would like to hear from Cancer patients who have applied for medical cards. There appears to be inconsistency in how the ‘rules’ which are unclear anyway are applied. We now of a cancer patient who was given a card without being asked about his income, we know of others, over the usual limits who got cards but others who were not successful. It appears that these cards are discretionary and it depends on who assesses your application. This is not right. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your experience of medical card applications.
