Swings and roundabouts - I'd rather have paid for prescriptions but get seen quicker at a hospital. The more "liberal" targets in Wales and Scotland has meant longer waits for patients.....

As you say swings in round abouts, here in England we may get seen quicker buy we also get kicked out the door quicker with or without MRSA:p

And one of the reasons given for increasing levels of MRSA is the overuse of anti-biotics. Maybe if everyone had to pay for anti-biotics it may cut the unnecessary usage and save a packet on fighting MRSA in hospitals. just a thought............

Then it's down to the GP's to reduce their prescriptions for antibiotics.

It's also down to the medical staff cleansing their hands, which they don't adhere to in my experience, nevermind the cleaners not doing their job properly.

personally i'd rather pay for my prescriptions and have lower waiting times for hospital appointments,
I had injections in my spine Dec 08 , check up Jan 09 and my next appointment is April 2010 and this was classed as urgent
how the hell is a surgeon supposed to monitor progress with this long between appointments is beyond me


Have to say I agree with this.

There are many other things the money should be spent on - prescriptions weren't exactly expensive in any case, and in most cases never covered the basic cost of the drug.
