    Re: Free or Reduced Cost Prescriptions - UK Only

    I have family members who are NHS hospital docs who give up so much to give patients good care- family time, even new baby time, is taken away by being 'on call'. It is a vocation for good doctors. They work really hard, experience big traiuma, get VERY frustrated by the inefficiency of the system of justifying and recording EVERY move, meeting STUPID targets set by govt - sothat if go to A&E with a heart attack n you with a pain in your toe we have the same right to immediacy of attention - so many time wasters go to A&E. I won't go on - I see young members of my family working so many long hours and being stressed and upset. Believe me, they do and see thingsthat would make us go green and run. I do know tho' that as thyroid probs taketime to diagnose and monitor before sorting it ain't really worth going private!

    I agree Anni, I work in a busy hospital, and it frustrates me of the injustice of it all. Doctors nurses and everyone who works for the NHS get such a rough deal abuse by patients relatives press and the public. And all we do is try and give a top notch service.

    I do agree also that Thyroid problems are not treated properly and it frustrates me I work for a organisation that doesnt look after people correctly whether knowlingly or noT!!!

    As for going private please exhaust the free NHS route first, it will cost you alot to go private!! and you can get better with the NHS first. thumbup

    The NHS is good and you do recieve 'free treatmemt' if you dont count the amount you pay in tax every month!

    It upsets me how many people who dont contribute to the NHS tax get free treatment, if you dont contribute you should nt get treatment simple. But the goverment want free treatment for all
    I'm not an expert. I'm here to share my Thyroid journey and tell you all my experience of Thyroid disease.
    If you want to chat, please dont hesitate to contact me, I will help where I can!!
