Sorry but I think the idea of abolishing prescription charges is just naff and pure politicking on the part of our local MLAs and Minister. The health service is strapped for cash so, what do we do? Yes, that's right, reduce the amount of money going into the health service even further. Still, it wins votes I suppose.
