OTC medication rationing only made a quarter of its targeted savings


GPs are free (sort of?). So is knowledge of 'Psychology of Influence and Persuasion', Roberto Cialdini 1984. If HMG, NHSE, CCG, NICE, GMC, RCGP or any other idiotic organisation wants OTC to be restricted, then they should sort the legality of that restriction. But they won't, as none of them has the moral courage (or wants to decrease their prospects of a professorship or a gong).
