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.

They are not private ltd companies normally. I can assure you the accounts do not work like that - and yes I DO know. I also know how the income has changed over the years. Anyway it does not matter. The point is for learning disabilities this is a great opportunity to get a health check and health plan with your GP.

somerandomguy

More detail here about the LD healthchecks payment https://digital.nhs.uk/services/general-practice-gp-collections/service-information/learning-disabilities-health-check-scheme GPs are incentivised to provide all sorts of care- they get paid for patients being on many pathways (warfarin is another). Yes there are costs to the surgery for doing these things but you do realise that a GP surgery is a private company, so the profit on income ends up in the partners bank accounts?

Perhaps this website, and in particular this page, might help answer some of the questions and fears in the comments. https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk//supporting-my-decision/myth-busting/

viniteng

Very informative and insightful! Thank you.

loiterer

Good to know the diagnosis was benign. I hope it gets sorted quickly as any thyroid upset can turn both your body and mind into an alien world. I'm sure you'll overcome any fears about (live) organ donation if ever you get news of a close relative or life partner having kidney failure and you are found to be a donor match. Though I'm not quite sure from your comment if you have any apprehensions about (post-mortem) organ donation. Existential death is the off switch we all hit, but an organ or two removed for transplant after death are definitely no longer required by the donor. I'm not sure if it is still UK law: Every one of us who dies without having been seen by a doctor 28 days prior to death, or has no doctor able to sign a death certificate, will undergo a post-mortem (autopsy) examination where every internal organ and the brain is removed and further dissected out so a pathologist can determine the cause of death and issue a green note allowing your body to be released for preferred funeral rites. Even if you are a registered organ donor if your death is sudden and unexpected or is the result of an accident or suspicious you will be autopsied and no donation is possible.

Thank you all for donating your blood. Transfusion saved my life 3 months ago. And although I wont be able to donate blood, two of my friends started donating theirs after my surgery. I also make sure that my son who is 6yo, is aware of how important blood donating is. Thank you one more time. It could be one of you who saved my life

fossman

I have been trying to book an appointment for about 6 months, every time I looked on the app the available appointments were in 3 to 4 months time. Imagine my shock when I checked last night and managed to get an appointment for today. Today was my 25th donation and the whole process of donating is still very drawn out, I usually try and book one of the first appointments of the session as you tend to get seen quicker but today was a mid session appointment and took around 1 hour 20 minutes from arriving at the venue to leaving the venue.

benbojangles

When the NHS stops giving me 6 month referral times, has an effective GP service, stops over charging prescriptions, offers cheap tests and screenings like those you can now buy cheaply online, improves NHS dental treatment to be more than just a preventative care service, gets on it's knees and begs for forgiveness, then I might consider giving blood. otherwise it's just not getting naff all.

Rob.

100% agree with this. I'm O-neg and have donated 5+ times, but every time I try and book there are no slots in my area for 3 months. Turned up on a whim once and ended up sitting for 2hrs until every one else had left.

xigent

They have to do more than offer statins they have convince patients to accept the prescriptions. Receiving more money if they do this is an incentive no matter how it’s worded. I used statins as an example, my point being that regular standardised health checks would be very beneficial as long as safeguards are put in place to avoid the over prescription of drugs. Early diagnosis of conditions that present no symptoms in the early stages would benefit the patients, the NHS and the taxpayer.

Spain received 75million visitors in 2016 and it’s tourism sector was worth 77 billion euros. This only accounts for 5% of it’s GDP. (data: World Economic Forum). So I guess the 135,000 English immigrants permanently living in Spain who are eating and drinking at ‘Bill’s English Bar’ must make up the remaining 95% of Spain’s GDP.

Bluebella

Your are correct to a point however the point of the NHS guidance is to "encourage" people to at least do some exercise. They have done research on this and there is a sliding scale of benefits and doing just 10 minutes will make a huge difference compared to doing nothing at all. Stating that people need to do an hour day will simple terrify many people who are out-of-shape, overworked and tired, and many of them will think that there's no hope so wont even bother trying. I started my exercise routines doing just 10 minutes and when I started to get fitter and healthier, my interest fitness grew and I started trying new things and extending my workouts. A few years later and I'm full of energy and love doing longer workouts but there was a time in my life when the idea of doing an hours exercise a day would seem like torture.

I would be happy to give blood regularly, but it isn't easy trying to work out where they're going to be taking blood and when. It would be great if I could pop into a&e, or better still a local clinic with free parking and donate it whenever I am free, but what seems to happen in Wigan is the circus rolls into town, they hire a big venue and hope everybody just happens to be free on that day. Maybe it actually works better than my method, but i've only managed to give blood once just because it usually isn't convenient when I remember to check if they're taking it locally.

I think its potentially a good thing. It isn't just A and E's it also lists minor injury units and walk in centres as well as what they can treat. If if encorages people go to a minor injury unit to treat a broken bone as there is less wait it takes the pressure of A and E.

Magnets

This seems like a great idea. I'm sure they'll get a lot of stick from people quoting the wait times and complaining when they had to wait longer than expected as A&E is prioritised based on need. I bet google could do a very good job of estimating this from all the data they collect, scary huh

KatsudonVince

It is common sense as well, say if someone is really sick and like you said he/she might not be fully appreciate the seriousness of the condition he/she could have, wouldn't he/she should drive straight to the A&E or perhaps call an ambulance at that instance? I would totally ignore the app and fly to the A&E if I have wings! Just my personal opinion.

KatsudonVince

Totally agree with you. This app will at least give an insight of the waiting time and you can go to the toilet, grab a quick bite etc and not there siting like a waiting duck.
