Paracetamols are 19p in Asda, its ridiculous getting them on prescription.

Many over the counter products are cheap and cheaper than prescriptions. Many who have free prescriptions don't won't pay for anything, so I'm glad that has been stopped now.

Some people obviously take advantage of the NHS. Rolling Eyes

I don't pay for prescriptions now (not that I get many) but for decades I seemed to be the only person in the Dr's pharmacy that ever got their purse out.
It used to amaze me how many fit looking, young/middle aged people were able to get their prescriptions free of charge.

Those young ones could be on benefits, so get free prescriptions. I think prescriptions should be free for everyone like in Scotland, but only for non over counter prescriptions.

I didn't know many of those things were on prescriptions. Anti dandruff shampoo is for people with psoriasis, dermatitis and not like the dandruff one you can buy in any supermarket.

Maybe Scotland, Wales and NI should pay for their Mags...the NHS is looking to save money not lose more.
