You do realise we as a nation have to pay for the NHS? It's not free, wasting doctor consultations which amount to over £50 (not to mention those desperate to actually get one but can't) plus pharmacy fees and the actual product cost for the sake of a couple of pound? No wonder the NHS is crippled!

don't just fly off the handle like that. the question is does the poster have a need for it?

Most people probably don't get prescriptions for "free", regardless of need. I don't pay for them directly any longer, due to my advanced years, and people on various benefits also qualify for "free" prescriptions, but of course we all pay one way or another, not least via the 20% VAT on almost everything we buy.

I worked at a pharmacy for 7 years and my partner is a pharmacist. It's the same old story GSLs being prescribed by the doctor's to stop patients moaning at them. There is no medical need to prescribe products which are both cheap and freely available; there is no medical need justifiable for nappy rash or bed sores in this case. How many times in the papers, people being denied life altering treatments because of lack of budget. With abuse of the NHS and 999 services alongside bad practices/management no wonder it's going down the pan.

It's the mentality of wanting to take out just as much, or more than what is put in, which is the common mentality nowadays, if there isn't enough net gain, then how are we to invest in the country's future?

I also get teething gel, calpol, aqueous cream and infacol using the minor ailments system. I save myself around £10-£15 every month, which adds up to a couple hundred quid a year!

Some people just cant afford to pay £5 for cream. Im not justifying anything and understand others are suffering from lack of funds but just slamming someone without hearing them out is not fair.

Which is what child maintenance is meant to be for to help look after the children, clothing, feeding and medical.

Minor ailments is a necessary evil to take the massive pressure and time off doctor's prescribing products which should be bought. Just because you can get the items doesn't mean you should. If you can't afford things in life then you don't have them, i.e. Broadband, cars, phones none are necessary to live your life but are luxuries.

I do believe the previous comment was sarcastic. You don't get it it's not free we pay for it by way of tax to the NHS which is struggling to run, job losses, denied services etc.

I pay my taxes, I'm entitled to get what I can. The Nhs is not in a mess because of a £5 nappy rash cream. It's going down the pan because it forks out £5000 for boob jobs and gastric bands

Yes as before bad management= stupid boob jobs/gastric bands

You times x amount of like minded people = crippled NHS


Entitled or abuse you decide

Some people genuinely cannot medicines for their children, so minor ailments helps a lot. However boob jobs and gastric bands are not a neccesity and therefore the Nhs should not pay for these

You can afford medicine its called child maintenance allowance.

As I said bad management but it doesn't discredit my point about abusing the service when you can buy these cheaply. Two wrongs don't make a right

Child maintenance? Do u mean child benefit? That barely covers nappies and food. Any other money I have covers bills etc. There is nothing left. I certainly don't have £15 for medicines every month.

If you can't afford to have children then don't. I only plan to have them when I am financially stable enough to provide for them. It's not for the state to provide for your children

I wasn't sarcastic sorry if it sounded like i was, I'm quite peed off actually lose a massive chunk of my pay every month to fund public services and don't get to see that money again, for example few months back I went gp for itchy scalp he gave me prescription for a shampoo called capasal, paid £7.40 or something for this bottle of shampoo anyways looked on ebay and bought 2 bottles for £4! I think it's better to be unemployed in this country, you get your rent paid, and everything is free!

It's not abusing the system, in this country prescription is free for under 18s and she is getting it for an under 18, where's the abuse?

Child maintenance is around £80 a month. If that can't buy you medicine and nappies and have change in your pocket then your obviously bonkers!

Nothing is free in this country especially if your white british. 9/10 those robbing our system shouldn't even be in our county!!!!!!!!

Don't forget that the £80 a month also has to pay for baby's food. I have to use my own money to pay for most of it.

Because it's a product which shouldn't be prescribed but it is to get parents off doctors backs. Nappy rash cream is not a medical need if the nappy rash cream became infected then yes see a doctor, being cheap and wasting nigh on £60 at the doctors then pharmacy costs is not right when you can walk into a shop for the sake a couple of pound

So you should you don't seem to realise children aren't a god given right. When you want children you check a few major things first. 1) will they be raised in a loving family 2) can the family provide for their needs


It's not for Mr Government to give you money to provide for them, you wanted children you provide for them

Everyone gets £80 per month. Are you saying that you won't take it?

Not everyone gets it, and no I won't take it I'll provide for my child. If you can't provide everything a child needs for £80 a month then you're doing something wrong in your budgeting.

Banned

The only people that don't get it are those that earn over £50,000 a year. The £20 per week I get barely covers the baby's food, never mind nappies and clothes. I think you are talking out of ur ass. You have no idea!!

Your opinion. Strange my sister has just had a little baby and she manages to cope with the costs, nappies, cream sma and clothes

Banned

Maybe she uses her own money to help. There is no way she can get all that for £20 a week. Sma milk costs a tenner and doesn't last a week, nappies are are about £5-£10 a week depending on where u shop. There is nothing left for clothes!!

If I can get a bit of help for my baby's medicines then I'll take it. I've been paying my taxes for years. If I'm paying into the Nhs then I'm sure as heck taking something back.

Let's hope your sister went back to work the day after birth coz I wouldn't want my tax money to pay for her to look after her child for upto a year... Yup that's called maternity leave I hope she didn't take that coz it will add upto more than the child benefit!

The way I see it is if I can give up £500 a month to the government and been doing it for past 10 years then I sure as hell can visit a gp for a cream that's worth £1, I wouldn't need to justify anything to you it anyone else and morally it's not wrong for me, I find it morally wrong me paying and not using the services I am entitled to!
