Calling All Pensioners at 1pm – accessing NHS Services + JOY’s Jane Keene

July 14th, 2014 · No Comments

On today’s Calling All Pensioners at 1pm DAGE’s chairman Harry Haward highlights the help there is with accessing NHS services that are not free to use if you are not on means-tested benefits and not yet of state retirement age (or when of state retirement age, you are not eligible for Guaranteed Pension Credit). Harry refers to the help with prescription costs, dental costs, eye care costs, healthcare travel costs, wigs and fabric supports. As it currently stands, everyone over 60 can get free prescriptions, but not help with the other NHS health costs such as for dental and eye costs and healthcare travel. Plus an interview with Jane Keene, chair of JOY – Just Older Youth – a user-led group run by a dedicated team of volunteers which offers a series of weekday sessions
including seated exercises, line dancing, gentle circuits and singing. [Repeated Sunday 2pm.]
