This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

GALPHARM Paracetamol (16's), for 19p each, at PoundStretcher.

This one is a bit self explanatory really, as it's a batch of really good paracetamol's, for ridiculously silly amounts of money, lol.

What's not to love?. :-)

I bought some of these earlier last night myself (while in the Woolwich area).

These were at the PoundStrecher, Woolwich Arsenal branch, but this will be National though. :-)


I guess there's a link to it on their website, but I've not linked to it (on account of the fact that I saw this Deal in person (and not rather online, etc?). :-D

The NHS spent more than £70 million giving paracetamol to patients in England last year despite it being available over the counter at a fraction of the cost. GPs issued more than 21,740,000 prescriptions at £3.23 per item even though the pills are sold for as little as 19p in shops.


This is why the NHS is broken and the answer is not more and more funds via the taxpayer. It needs decent management and process putting in place.
It's a runaway monster.

You have to ask for what ailment gps think paracetamol is treating . It's so low dose for painkilling it's pointless . It's because people expect to be handed drugs by a gp for minor ailments and the fact a fair percentage of people get them for nothing that's it's out of control .
If you pay ,you would not fork out £9 for paracetamol . If the only thing your gp gives you is paracetamol you probably don't need to be there in the first place .

If nobody speaks with so much love Then that's ok. Everyone then must?
Doesn't make sense to me. What does it mean?
I remember vividly small print on shelf says max 2 per customer.

I'll have a go......
It was a sunny and warm morning as the love of my life- Paracetamol and i, walked hand in hand along the sandy shores, the water lapping at our toes. We'd been together for almost 30 years and i still adored the way the sultry whiteness of Paracetamol could stop me in my tracks with just a glance. I knew we would always be together.
But one day, at the store, i saw another, younger and more exciting rival....it was Nurofen Max.
How could i resist these charms.
I couldn't, once i had sampled these forbidden fruits, there was no going back.

There we go, i'm available for signings at my local Waterstones. Just you wait for the Tom Hanks/Tom Cruise/Steven Spielberg film version...Paracetamol v Nurofen.
Why are their no Asprins in the jungle?

The NHS saved billions for not prescribing real medicine and giving instead this useless panache. Not to talk about the relief to pension system, if some of those people gone dead.

I remember seeing a program on tv where GP's hand them out like a Placebo just to make patients feel they are being listened to. I must admit I didn't think they cost the Nhs that much. There are alot of medications our G P practice wont prescribe if you can buy them over the counter without a prescription.

I don't think you're right on top of this story to be honest.

Only if you pay .. If you don't pay they prescribe them . .. Crazy system that costs everyone money for prescribing 16p worth of paracetamol at a cost of £4 or so .

by the way if you have a hangover headache drink water .. Paracetamol is ineffective .

"You have to ask for what ailment gps think paracetamol is treating . It's so low dose for painkilling it's pointless ."

I'm not sure as to where exactly your train of thought for your particular comment there was initially/actually going, or whatever?, but ...

Unless you have some mad a$$ ailments or whatever, even thing's like morphine can't be prescribed to you via your GP.

Whether that's a good thing, a bad thing, and/or a wholly ugly thing, is a whole diffent argument entirely ...

Don't forget, it wasn't that long ago that even 'basic drugs' like neofen were prescription ONLY, remember?.

As was codein, as was supradyn, etc etc, right?.

Now alllllll those thing's can now be blatantly bought straight off the Pharmaceutical counter ... lol.

However we choose to interpret such 'medicine things', the reality of the matter is this, there are still certain 'legalities' that the medical professions are still both legally + morally bound to, regardless?.

And that (fortunately/unfortunately), is the actual reality of it, etc? (as I've mentioned already).

So much as they may/may NOT want to whatever'?, they'll be 'certain stuffs' of which they'll blatantly not be able to oblige us alllllll with, basically?.

Hospital's on the other hand (I believe) have a slightly wider 'window of scope' where such thing's are concerned ...

But the reality here also is this, you're NOT likely going to be rocking up to your nearest hospital for sodding your paracetamol prescription now are you?, hehehe.

Chance's are you'll be (hopefully) figuratively on your death bed anyway?.

So by that point, the 'stronger stuffs' can be given/accessed to you, via them, etc etc?.

Let's just say, I'm speaking via a bit of 'personal experience', here too ...

Enough said, lol.
