I seem to be addicted to writing about pills and it is obviously catching. Because as fast as I write about it more and more articles appear in the media on the same topic. (You can read all my earlier posts by click on “Pills” in the Tag Cloud)
So the NHS is finally putting its foot down. There will be less pills from now on, At least on prescription. You will be encouraged —- no —- told to go buy them yourself from the local chemist.
In future you will no longer be able to get pill for all ills from your GP. Take your itches and aches to the pharmacist first and they will certainly sell you something. It is just a matter of time before they start doing over the counter or even on the counter heart transplants.
