Court rules suspension of 1 prescription surcharge

Tue 29th Jan 2013
Court rules suspension of 1 prescription surcharge

The Constitutional Court of Spain today ruled to suspended the 1 prescription surcharge introduced across the region of Madrid last year.

The National PP Government referred the measure to the Courts, who made a similar ruling against the regional of Catalonia just 2 weeks ago.

Madrid's regional government - also run by the PP - imposed the charge in the face of escalating costs and pressure from the central government to meet deficit targets.

Critics denounced the practice as hurting the most vulnerable - those with chronic illnesses and the elderly - whilst the government argued that the measure violated the constitutional rights of the induvidual.

However, the ruling made was a "suspension" - not a total removal - pending further legal manoeuvres.
