Why on earth would anyone pay for Condoms when they are freely available …Why on earth would anyone pay for Condoms when they are freely available to all from Family planning centres, STI clinics, GUM clinics etc and can be obtained online or in person.

If these are extra-safe, it brings into question how safe their standard condoms are.

Apparently these are extra-safe due to their thickness. So the thin, sensitive branded ones, are less-safe.

The two are just not comparable. The NHS and private institutions provide them free to save the NHS from preventable costs due to sexual disease, unwanted pregnancy and state welfare costs which vastly outweigh the cost of a few condoms. Paracetamol are not readily available.

You're just confirming the point, if you have the money buy it yourself, if not get them for free, no need to get them for "free" just because you can, it negates the tax paid in, as with all the paper work involved, the condoms are likely costing more through the NHS.

Yes, but at least the thin ones don't feel like you've fallen asleep on your arm.

It's not about how much it costs YOU but about how much it costs NHS when you choose not to buy it yourself. "[...] paracetamol is an average of four times as expensive when provided on prescription by the NHS, compared to when it is purchased in pharmacies or supermarkets. It can costs around £34 for 32 on prescription including dispensing and GP consultation fees." "england.nhs.uk/201…re/

No, no, no (face-palm). You've completely missed the point. I'm actually reflecting on the fact that your morals and talk are inherently cheap (ironic given the subject matter, don't you think?) Contraceptives are far more expensive to purchase over the counter than paracetamol, therefore, I'm presuming you'd think twice about 'saving our NHS' when the cost is multiplied exponentially on your part.

OK then yes is correct and wont argue it but It is still affordable to me and most people, the age that most takes advantage of the free condoms are 15-19 year olds so basically school ages where they likely dont have jobs so it makes sense. My point is that you pay for what you can as it's not cost effective to pay tax and then get your condoms free, so it's not a crazy prospect to pay for condoms as you make it out to be.
Any idea of the use by dates as ive just had the birthday, christmas and valentines quota
I can do one better- go ultra safe and not have sex... For free?

Voting cold.

Perfectly safe in standard. These just give more piece of mind to the paranoid I guess. I personally always found them a bit of a downer compared to other options by Durex, as they're obtusely thick and it's not as enjoyable.

As a youngster though, better extra safe than sorry.
You can buy 100 Pasante ones for about a tenner on ebay. I've been doing that for years. These are a rip.

I don't get this claim at all - I never did. The vast majority of people pay for their prescriptions - something like £9 per item now. If people are getting paracetamol via prescription, then the vast majority are paying around £9 per pack, whereas the government are probably paying around 10p per packet (economies of scale so heavily discounted). Um, aren't the government/NHS making a killing on these items?

As said, I don't understand so perhaps you can explain this anomaly?

The only thing that would possibly explain this would be that they give away £70million of paracetamol at hospitals to people being discharged i.e., no prescription required, although having spent a few weeks in hospital last year I had to pay for my prescription medication upon being discharged, so that doesn't really explain it.

So as it stands, it's a mystery how the NHS can be losing money on dispensing paracetamol.

89% of prescriptions are given free of charge in England, as of 2017. 100% of prescriptions are free in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. digital.nhs.uk/dat…017

The NHS gives out £70m worth of paracetamol each year, and only gets about £20m in prescription charges.

Hopefully you understand now.
I think some people in this thread don’t understand that Extra safe condoms tend to be used for non-vaginal sex - hence they need to be more rigorous in their construction.

People prefer to buy Durex as they are a known brand and feel different to the NHS’ free condoms - which I’ve always experienced are somewhat lesser in quality (whether that’s inconsistency with lubrication or thickness of latex) and you can’t get all the fancy stimulation stuff like ribbing or sensation spots.

No need for the condescending tone of your last comment.

That aside, I'm happy to say I stand corrected - I'm flabbergasted that 89% of prescriptions are free, but thinking about it, it's obvious as most people that require medication are children or the elderly - neither of which are required to pay. The elderly are responsible for somewhere between 52% and 62% (from memory) according to the spreadsheet download, which is much more than I expected, but again understandable when one thinks about it. I can't find the confirmation of the cost of paracetamol and the associated cost recovered via the links, but I accept your word on that.

So yes, I now understand how it can cost more to prescribe paracetamol compared to what they recover, so thanks for clarifying that.
