i took our youngest sprog (11 months now btw) to the docs this morning because she's been poorly of late - picking up all sorts from her nursery and wherever else.
Anyways, she's had a bit of a cold & a bad chest last few days & last night she had a sleepless night so we thought best see a quack.
The doc said it wasn't serious, no infection, just a bit of mucus & just to keep her warm, dry etc & the cold will pass. All fair enough.
She suggested giving her calpol to keep her temp. down etc. At this point, I asked if she could give me a prescription for some. She refused & said that they don't give prescriptions for it anymore & we have to buy it off the shelf.
Is this true or was she blagging? I thought anything like this was free for under 16's etc.
i know some of you lot are clued up on stuff like this so I thought I'd run it by y'all.
