Monks in England - free prescriptions?

Postby Craig86 » Sun Mar 16, 2014 10:28 am

Do the monks in this country get free prescriptions on the NHS, or does the cost of prescriptions have to be paid for from the money the monastery receives in donations?

Kind Regards,
Craig

Usually prescriptions are free for monks. But for some items like special glasses etc. the monastery would have to pay the extra amount from donations.
