Make sure you put in the date that you paid for your medicines as the start date of your ppc. Hope that helps (y)
If you have a pre-pay cert, If you can get an NHS receipt (FP57) from the online pharmacist when you pay for the prescription(s) you should be able to claim the cost back.
Absolutely right. Buying medications whilst on holiday can be economical too. I always buy 3 or 4 Ventolin inhalers at £2.60 a go when i'm in Spain. Theres 1 in my pocket, one under my pillow , one in the car etc. Not over use just there for emergencies which any Asthmatic will relate to. Many other drugs are considerably cheaper abroad so always check. Unfortunately this country is over policed when it comes to medications. Most Europen and countries in the Mid/Far East have a far more sensile attitude to over the counter medications. You can buy just about anything. When I managed a Care Home in London staff were not allowed to give a glucagon injection to save a Diabetic residents life. We were required to diall 999 even though many of the staff were qualified Nurses. Thats how rediculous it can be here.
You are indeed correct
