Now I'm not one for going off on one very often however, Prescription charges in England are rising again. Not by much, but, never the less, a rise. BBC News - Prescription charges to increase by 20p in England This comes just days after this.... BBC News - MSPs vote to axe NHS prescription charges in Scotland Do you think that the two are linked? Time after time I get fed up with the English paying through the nose and getting shafted. Hurumph!
