Over seven pounds for some pills!!
As a chemist (not a pharmacist) I understand the process and cost that medicines go through and the cost involved.
I was given a prescription by the consultant at the private hospital. The instructions from the consultant were simple, take it to the GP and get it converted to a NHS one.
Unfortunately the GP could not prescribe the medicine requested by the consultant because it didn't follow Solihull guidance.
I went to Sainsburys and asked how much it would cost if I bought the pills privately.
£42 for 30 pills
£51 for 30 pills
After talking with the pharmacist I went for the NHS option!!!
