    Default Prescription Charges only in England

    This just isnt right is it, now in Scotland prescriptions will be free ..
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-12612623
    So, only in England will prescriptions still have to be paid for..

    The ever devolving United Kingdom, surely the "United" part of UK will soon have to be removed under trade descriptions act..

    They were only £3 anyway, where as the ones south of the border are £7.90?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Yes ours have been being reduced by £1 every year over the last 4 years with the objective of them becoming free. Im sure the stats for prescriptions were a joke anyway, think it was 82% of all prescriptions are free, I imagine this is down the amount of junkies out there getting free methadone to top up their Smack habit's.

    Been like this for years anyway, how many times are surveys announced as being "covering England and Wales", National Garden Scheme does not cover the Nation, it only covers England and Wales.... etc etc....

    Have you never been offered the Yearly prescription? It "only" costs about £80 and covers you, funnily enough, for a year no matter how many prescriptions you need.

    There you go.

    Ok £104 but that would save you £550 a year or so.
