The NHS needs a coherent prescribing strategy


And while you are at it........ Look at the other side. Prescriptions. Why do thyroid patients get free scripts. ALL scripts not just the thyroxine. Why Diabetics get ALL their scripts free. Over 60 year olds! Why? Why not receipt of an Old Age Pension? Should Hypertensives get free meds? How about Rheumatoids? Might I suggest a root and branch review of prescribing and prescriptions? COI over 60 with free scripts!
