In brief: UK healthcare . . . Coughlan zen . . . Revolting teachers
Over Easter I stayed in my home town of Newcastle and unfortunately I had reason to call my local doctor. On the Tuesday the doctor was off, but I was forwarded to a doctor on call.
He listened to my complaint and told me that I could collect the necessary prescription from our local pharmacy.
I made the call at 12pm and and at 12.20pm the pharmacy had the prescription ready and there was no fee. Can anyone imagine this with our health service?
