For those of you who are new to all of this and possibly needing more prescriptions I thought it worth posting about this scheme.
A pre-payment certificate can be bought, for either three months at a time or a year. I opt for the annual kind and ten payments are taken from my bank account, this time it's £10.40 so the annual cost will be £140; mine arrived today. You show it when you collect your scripts or, if your chemist is organised, they have a note on their records. This saves me a great deal of money as my average repeat script will contain at least five items taking the cost to just over £41 per go so it is cost-effective (my maths may well be erroneous, I have a vile stomach bug). Information can be found at your local chemist or on-line (I can't do the fancy blue stuff but I'm sure it's easily found). DD
Have you got the despatches? No, I always walk like this. Eddie Braben
