Paying for drugs makes sense
I’m pleased to see that the Conservatives in Wales are saying that they’ll scrap free prescriptions when elected. It’s never made sense to me that I can get a packet of Paracetamol for free when it’s prescribed by my Doctor when it would only cost me around 50p to buy one.
Of course there are many people in Wales who need free prescriptions, but there are also many who can afford to pay for their medicine. And in times of challenge we should pay for what we can.
