Do you mean, if everyone bought these instead of having NHS prescriptions, the NHS wouldn't be in the mess it's in?

Most people, I suspect, who have paracetamol prescriptions can afford to buy their own, and that would save the NHS millions over the next few years. Equally, many people turn up at A&E without having seen their GP or pharmacist, not realising how much extra it costs the NHS when you do that - it's many times more expensive to roll up at A&E, and that's another reason that the NHS is struggling.

Rant over, great post, thanks for sharing!

This is a tiresome misconception. gponline.com/gps…809

The NHS isn’t falling apart because some poor people aren’t paying for cheap basics, it’s falling apart because of drastic underinvestment from a Tory government who stand to benefit from its demise

*great deal btw OP, alas these prices probably won’t hold up the NHS for any additional amount of time! *
Oh good another NHS debate over a box of tablets geez. Fact is. .sooner NHS goes the better...end of discussion

These on the NHS substitute higher cost cancer drugs. Every prescription cost £9, regardless of how much it cost the NHS. So if you buy these from the NHS for £9 then your substituting cancer drugs. Because you pay over what it's worth and them with higher costs pay under. At least that's my understanding of how socialism works.

I suspect you mean subsidise not "substitute" and I also suspect there is a bit more to socialism than subsidising cancer drugs.
Great need a box after reading the comments

How would the Tory’s GAIN from the NHS failing? If they did that they’d never get in power again.
Really?? Their business interests and their donors’ business interests will benefit. They’re quite literally destroying this country and you chumps still vote for them - there’s literally no level of distraction so far that has persuaded people not to vote for them. Brexit is the clearest example of national sabotage and it’s 100% Tory made.

I’ll just let you know, public healthcare isn’t socialism. The NHS was actually paying significantly more for these basic drugs than the retail values, so prescribing them was harmful. It’s no longer permitted. Alas it’s antibiotics and steroids that largely go to subsidise more expensive NHS drugs, and realistically, they definitely don’t.
