Claiming back VAT?

Hello all

Ive heard today that if you are disabled or have a chronic illness, then you are allergable to claim VAT back?

is this correct? if so, does anyone know how to find out about claming it back?

thanks x

Hi, you can claim back VAT/ buy exempt from VAT products and services for your personal use relating to your disability only.

So, if I was to buy a walking stick, I can purchase without VAT added on top.

Most websites have the form (just a few basic questions) when buying such items, which allows you to buy without VAT.

As to claiming it back I have no idea.
2006. Tummy issues (more IBD than IBS).
2009 joint pain/worsening tummy issues.
CRP 20-36 2006-now. C3/C4 inflammation markers huge,
2014 IDA & low B12.

June 2014 admitted to Hospital 3 nights as emergency transfused 2 units of blood. Dangerous case of anaemia.
Caught by pure chance!
Cause currently unknown but suspected CD.

Waiting on blood & stool results from January.

Hoping to stop anaemia treatment soon & lower B12 daily dose!

Skirting over it, is seems you can only get it VAT free if its sole purpose is to help with a disability, and that the money will be deducted by the seller (ie you dont claim it back)
Current Meds:
2x 1200mg Mezavant, 3x50mg Azathioprine, Infliximab (6 weekly)
