The Government says it want to clamp down on people getting prescriptions for free when not entitled. Yet pharmacists will often hand out free drugs without asking to see an exemption certificate.
This is just one problem that costs the NHS a fortune. We have foreigners using our NHS for free and even flying in to have operations or have babies.
Then we have thousands of pounds of things stolen from hospitals including beds, TV’s, toilet paper, soap, razors etc.
NHS products should be stamped with NHS. I know nurses who have NHS soap at home.
If the NHS was set up like a business it could buy in bulk and get the best prices. Even better if it developed its own drugs to cut the extortionate prices charged by pharmaceutical companies. They could also develop their own equipment and products and sell these to other health providers.
We even have G.P’s using NHS equipment to do private work not NHS jobs.
