lol, if i save a mum 10p ill have a happy day



thanks rappy - i am going to spread the word - you will make a lot of mummies very happy

well deserved rep:thumbsup:


just seen this as well - for ladies who suffer - antibiotics without a prescription (about time!!)

You can also speak to the pharmacist if you are suffering with a minor eye infection (not applicable to children under 1 year of age) or if you are a woman suffering with cystitis (a water infection). Under this new service your pharmacist may be able to prescribe an antibiotic to treat your symptoms.

ooh that sounds interesting, am out of Calpol actually - thanks hun:thumbsup:

thanx rappy was going to go and buy some calpol the weekend, that saves me some more money repped ya

I thought this was one of those stupid annoying adverts... you know with the yogurt pots ... "Hello mums!"

I have known of this happening where I live for 18 months if not longer I actually buy my paracetamol from boots but the care of the chemist comes in handy for other things like hayfever relief. Also note not all chemists do this!

Nice one Rap - didn't know about this. I spent a few bob in ASDA last week on calpol etc beacuse a GP told us - over the phone that our 10 month old had gastric-enteritis.

She got worse over the weekend and is now in hospital. We are waiting her blood test results but they reckon it could be meningitis as she developed the rash etc.

She's actually a bit better in herself since last night so here's hoping.

I will bear this info in mind though- it all adds up when you have kiddies as you know.

regards

this is a good thing, you wouldnt believe, well you probably would, how many people make go appointments because their little one is ill and needs calpol, most illnesses in children dont need to be seen by a gp, so i think it is a good thing

This has been around for a while, certain pharmacies will offer the minor ailments scheme which allows us to give free medicines for certain PCT approved conditions - just saves you going to your gp. Not just for kids, anybody can be treated.

By the way, the NHS reimburse the pharmacy for the medicines supplied (sometimes more than what they cost + a fee!) so the pharmacies make quite alot of money through these schemes
