I used them. It was one to one talking therapy. You are asked to fill in a few questions to assess your levels in different areas of your mind/life. Takes about 2 minutes in the waiting room before you go in. Its an hour a week for 12 weeks. I did 10 weeks by then I was feeling much better. Big thank you to Rosea X.

PA; do remember to take the time to celebrate what you've done right fellow hoomans - even if you're currently enjoying somesort of terrible misery-puke inducing experience from behind your eyes. It might not seem genuine - but there's a hug being written into this very text for everyone to enjoy. Providing you like hugs.

Re the SNP comment, I was referring more to their landslide 2015 general election result in Scotland rather than last year's Scottish parliament election.



Yup - I'm in Scotland, and live in a rural area, travelling into one of the cities.

Although the SNP vote in 2015 resulted in almost all the seats, according to the figures, they actually got just under 50% of the votes - if Westminster elections weren't done as first past the post, the SNP would have significantly less seats.

Given that many (not all) of them will no longer have financial dependents, will have cleared their mortgage, etc., and have more disposable income, I struggle when I see them using their bus passes to get to work in the morning. Personally, I would add an extra clause to the provision of bus passes to no longer in paid work.As for the SNP being voted in by a huge majority, and remembering that it is a proportional representative vote, if it's a huge majority, why are they a minority government?



You must either live in Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland or London if you are travelling to work in the morning with people using free bus passes because to my knowledge, everywhere else in England, they cannot be used before 9.30am on weekdays. Personally, I don't have an issue with free bus passes and think they should be available for the elderly (according to Passenger Focus research, some 95% of passengers agree) though 60 is not so old these days with people living longer than ever before. Maybe the state pensionable age used in England is a better age to grant them but as it is a concession that you, me and everyone else is entitled to eventually anyway, my only issue is the unfairness of the 6 year age difference between qualifying for one in England (ignoring London's 60+ Oyster card as an exception to the rule) compared to NI, Wales and Scotland.

Independent studies have also shown that free bus passes are actually sustainable and socially and economically beneficial to the UK. Estimates are that it would cost the UK £1.7 billion to scrap this particular concession because for every £1 spent on free bus passes, apparently it generates nearly £3 of benefits.

Thank for raising awareness!

Then again, as the Scottish people have had to put up with the weak economic, education and public services record of the SNP over the last few years, perhaps they deserve a few perks. On the other hand, they did vote them in again with a huge majority so maybe they don't. (_;)

Not only that but the link provided says nothing about this being 'free'. It says only that "Men with the following medical conditions are entitled to NHS prescriptions for PDE-5 inhibitors". Not all prescriptions are 'free' ones.

Sildenafil (generic Viagra) is no longer on the SLS in England, so you don't need one of those conditions for it to be prescribed for you.

​well if you go for a treatment/checkup, everything work done in the same band is included in one payment for 2 months, and the are obliged to do all the necessary treatment in one course (payment),

yeah you can get the mouth guards from sports direct- ones that you soak in hot water that are suppose to mould to you teeth/gums they are absolute rubbish for a tenner.

Evidence please...

Some dentists push for an unnecessary crown so they can make loads of money. I had this experience, he wanted the money for the crown upfront when I needed root canal first and stick the crown straight on. I went to another dentist, had root canal waited to see if it was sucessful before considering a crown. She did it three times but explained it was bad so might not be sucessful and if it didn't work I'd need it removed and if it did a rubber dam inserted and a filling was all that would be needed. Either way it would only cost £51.30 as it is the same course of treatment and in the same band

Asthmatics shouldn't have to pay (though the effective annual maximum is £104) but it's nothing to do with severity. It's entirely down to what originally appeared on the exemptions list - nobody dare add to that list because of the cost, and all the arguments that would follow about what should or should not be added.

Read the what is covered in the NHS and I don't think free parking is included the same as some optical and dentistry requirements In case you haven't grasped the reason for having to raise parking charges, it's because that in a lot of cases people have been using them for other requirements than to visit the hospital. this helps prevent the situation were you turn up in your car and you can't park because the parking has been taken up by these inconsiderate people. So now you stand a better chance of getting a space so please just pay up.

The dial a ride scheme is for people who do not possess a car. They cannot cope at the moment with oaps having to book days in advance and a snortage of drivers.

If you sre ill the last thing you eant is hanging around in the rain for a bus and catching flu and other germs on the bus.You want a partner or neighbour to be able to drive you to the hospital and park.

The last Labour government were pefectly willing to sell off school playing fields to become housing estates. They could have built hospitals on them and using grasscrete the rest of the field could become a car park. There is no need to build multi story car parks.

As to shoppers might park in hospitsl car parks, just proves the point that shopping car parks should be free and no yellow lines desease. Yellow lines just push the problem further out and creat a new problem which is self perpetuating creating more yellow lines and resident only bays until a whole town us ruined and covered with them, making people shop elsewhere.

For the majority of people in this Country a car is a necessity and MPs and Councillors often dont understand this fact. Where we live our village has a bus come twice a week, and one of those times it does not come back!

And if you can't get the bus there is the councils dial-a-ride Your text here service or similar. If you are too old or doddery.

There's even the taxicard scheme for much reduced cab fare.

Yes but if your read and ingest the whole page you will read that it is the British that claim it is the British Isles and the Southern Irish strongly dispute this title and Eire and Northern Ireland lie on the Island of Ireland.
Eire is a separate state and is part of the Euro Zone in it's own right and uses the Euro as it's monetary unit.
So yes the pig-headed British like to call it The British Isles, some even try to include the Channel Isles.

How old are you? About time you perhaps started acting your age, rather … How old are you? About time you perhaps started acting your age, rather than your shoe size?The EHIC card is not particularly well advertised. You don't see daily adverts on TV or radio, and I can't remember the last time I saw a poster about it in my GP surgery.A great many people do not know about it, and many that have heard about it end up paying fees to third parties for applying to have one. As evidenced by the many comments attesting to these facts on this thread.Now if you want to act like a child with your attempt at reductio ad absurdum, go ahead, you're only making a fool of yourself. The fact remains that this section is for anything that is free. Ergo posting that you can get a free appointment by contacting the local GP surgery would be a valid post. As would free voting. Perhaps if you look at the heat rating on this post, you will realise just how out of touch with the HUKD community you are.



And I've done just that. See:

I have to agree on the comments regarding scam sites showing up in a Google search....
I only clicked on one because the official site says 'NHS England' and I was thinking to renew through NHS Scotland...
I only quit at the last page of the very official looking scam page, where it then makes the first mention of a payment charge (£49). Back to the official site, entered details, email confirmation, 2 days later in the post.

I read of the scam passport sites which are suing people for not paying up after realising their mistake, glad I never hit the submit button this time.

edit: I searched EHIC on the NHS sites for those of us not in England: Scotland redirects to NHSEngland, Wales shows an application page, NI has 'no results for search'.

Still valid, and still a big potential saver - I've updated the figures in the original post.

really worth it, I have been using this for a few years now and makes it much cheaper, without it I would be paying nearly 50 quid a month

Since PPC costs were frozen for 2 years in 2014, there is not going to be any increase in 2015. So theoretically you can buy PPC for three months at 29.10 and yearly one at 104 till 10 Mar 2016 (going by the announcement date for last hike). But there is no cap on single prescriptions so they may rise again as mentioned in the original post.

I live in Wales. In the 16 years I've lived here I have NEVER been given a prescription from the doctor so have NEVER used the free services available in Wales. When I lived in Mid Wales I went to the doctor 4 times in 14 years, NEVER had to wait longer than 24 hours for an appointment. In past 2 years of living in South Wales the horror stories I hear would make you cringe - patients having to wait 2 weeks for an appointment. Those needing same-day appointments queuing from 6am in all weathers to be seen when the surgery opens at 9am, those arriving at 9am not being seen until after lunch. I see people EVERY day collecting prescriptions that require a carrier bag as they have so many drugs on repeat and the majority of these ARE on benefits/elderly/chronically ill.
Now my sister-in-law lives in England and gets her prescriptions free as she is registered disabled. She recently asked me to take some unused medicines back to the pharmacy for her - these 'unused' medications filled 4 black bin bags!!! and must have cost the NHS/taxpayer £1000's. I'm not sure who's to blame, or where the fairness is but something somewhere has to be done to get the NHS back on track.

Us poor welshys always miss out !! sad times !! :((

Voted hot to negate the cold-voting miseries.

Though next time, do tell people what is actually on offer.

Without clicking through, we don't know if it's recipes, free sweeteners or just some tips we already know about low/no sugar alternatives.

Turns out it's:

"Free Sugar Swaps guide to eating less sugar, shopping pad, swap cards and stickers
Money off vouchers to make buying Sugar Swaps cheaper
Handy weekly emails and texts packed with tips, advice and fun ideas to help you swap. "
