Went to see the Doctor this morning, he said I had Shingles and gave me a prescription for some tablets and cream..His charge was 60e and would you believe the script came to 106e I kid you not...That was for 21 tablets and the smallest tube of cream I've ever seen . Totally out of order and needs looking into, these drug companies are getting away with murder. Oh to have a medical card, I can understand people not willing to work when you have such huge amounts to pay out when something like this happens...Shameful to think that having paid my taxes all my life I still have to fork out such sums ...

Up here you would have got everything for free , assuming you are over 65 workrider . Not sure we will be able to maintain that service if the Brexit nonsense comes to fruition .

That cost seems exhorbitant .  We don't know generally how much medication costs , that is until we take our animals to the vet . Last week our dog needed some medication for itchy ears , vet prescribed some steroid tablets , tablet costs around £10 in a total treatment cost of over £100 . One of my sons is a pharmacist , he looked at the pills and said he was paying only a few pence for similar . One of the reasons that pet insurance is relatively expensive .

I was in Doncaster racing a few years ago and got a dicky tummy , ate a lot of fish that week, Doctor examined me and wrote a script for some medicine, when I asked how much I owed her she smile and said nothing, I could hardly believe it, and said well get yourself a drink at least offering up a score ,she refused point blank but thanked me anyway. Can't see that happening here anytime soon Kelly. All my family work so I am entitled to Nothing ,having owned my own business and payed huge amounts of tax over the years its a little hard to take. Such is life.

Have to agree wholeheartedly.

The Irish Doctor would have said 'Cheers, mines a Stout.

I’m rolling round the floor laughing here,say what you want about the little ginnit but the old wonker is one funny guy. All my family work was a beauty , but the classic has to be owning his own business and paying huge amounts of tax over the years . Signing on is not really a business as such , although when there’s about 10 in the one house doing it , you could possibly call it one !

Good man Johnny, you never fail. Pity you wouldn't get out and do the odd day yourself if would help with the anger. If work was in the bed you'd sleep on the floor!...Laugh
