Pharmacists and I.O.U's
With the recent talk of perscription charge reintroduction i feel that i need to rant.
Have been a Type1 Diabetic for over thirty years now and applaude the fact that i do not need to pay for my insulin and syringes. This was thanks to H.I.V. as before my parents used to buy in bulk disposable syringes and needles. We all know that the NHS is a shadow of its former self and this makes me sad as i see us, (UK) the same as the USA in approx twenty years and this really will be a shocking disgrace and an unforgiveable insult to future generations.
I see the biggest ****-takers of the NHS are those who make a living from it. I normally get a monthly perscription (Bulk) and every month its the same.
"We dont have that in stock, heres an IOU." ....and before anybody jumps in to defend them (Bazza?) And say 'Well they might not have any stock' . Today, i had a free half day and went to collect one of the IOU. I was treated with annoyance and disgust and the counter lady actually turned and said.
" You are one of the very few who actually comes back for your IOU!"
I looked at her and said " Is it any wonder the NHS is on its knees" and left.
