pitty you can only buy two boxes at a time because you may be an over dose case in the making!!

Crazy!!

Just buy a bottle of non branded ibuprofen suspension, better value and easier to get the medicine on a spoon/syringe. Why pay for the brand name?

A bargain at £1! Plus they are designed for taking out with you. You can't really carry a bottle of medicine around in your bag!

Correct, Tesco do one now (suspension) I notice. There is no difference between branded and tesco brand except Placebo effect maybe.

Agreed, tesco, asda, morrisons, boots etc all do the same medication, but cheaper.:thumbsup:

But given this is a good price for this product, I've voted hot.

Why do you actually pay for infant paracetamol anyway?? In my area (wigan) we have a minor ailments scheme run by the nhs and i am sure it is nationwide.

You go into your local chemist, ask for a minor ailments form, fill it in (30 seconds of a job), ticking what is wrong ie.fever/ nappy rash etc and they will give you FREE unbranded calpol or branded sudocrem/bonjela as a prescription for under 16's.

Adults can do it too - it saves on a visit to the docs, there is a list of ailments that the chemist can prescribe for longer than my arm, you can even get gaviscon for indigestion!

I am sure it is nationwide but ...... maybe not:thinking:

Looks like NE and London mainly.

Minor ailment services
Some pharmacies run a minor ailment service, which means that they can supply medicines for certain specific conditions on the NHS. It's up to local primary care trusts (PCTs) to decide whether pharmacies in your area provide these services.

The pharmacy minor ailment service was introduced to try and reduce the number of pointless GP appointments. Purely seeing a GP to get free paracetamol is selfish +++. :x
