£1 per script item for all
From Dr Velu Chandran
The Department of Health tells us to change consultation style so there will be a shift towards preventive medicine and self-care (News, 16 March)!
How can we convince patients to self-care when 80 per cent of prescriptions are free and pharmacy medications are more expensive than the cost of the prescription charge?
Make everyone pay £1 towards each item with no exceptions.
