I just figured it may be worth me warning people about the PPCs. I've had one for more years than I care to remember and it has always been renewed automatically because I pay by Direct Debit. A few weeks ago I got a letter telling me mine was running out and would need renewing. I thought that was odd so emailed them to check what was happening. There has been some technical issue at their end (which they are investigating :roll: ). This has resulted in some PPCs which, like mine, have been rolling on for many years being cancelled. I've just re-applied for a new one but I was initially going to ignore the letter warning me that my PPC was going to run out because I figured it was just an automatic thing and after all these years it wouldn't apply to me.
I know from chatting with my chemist that they are really clamping down on PPC fraud. I had an interesting tangle with them myself earlier this year when they realised there was a mismatch between my PPC name and my name recorded on scripts (I hadn't updated the card with my married name, whoops). It took three replacement cards before they managed to get the details correct - I had Mrs Maiden Name, Miss Married Name before they finally figured out, with emails and phone calls, I was Mrs Married Name. The system is a bit wonky to say the least! If you get the letter though please at least email them and check it means you. I'm glad I did because I know the fines are hefty even if they were the problem to start with... over and out, as you were, enjoying summer with joints hating it in my case :sland-shark: :hammock: :deckchair: :cheers: :bouncing-ball: :splash: :swim-shark:
Hey little fighter, things will get brighter
