NHS England issues 'letter of comfort' on OTC prescribing for GPs


This is absolutely typical of the woolly thinking and policy making to which we are subject. For goodness sake NHSE grow a backbone and simply blacklist all items that are readily available OTC. I really do not believe it when people say they cannot afford 32p for a pack of Paracetamol. The benefit of this also is that it encourages self-management of problems that all too readily present to primary care.
