Money wasted?

Two pensioners, who are known to me, have recently visited their local doctor’s surgery.

They were given prescriptions for paracetamol and a tubular bandage (for which they do not have to pay).

These items are readily available over the counter. What a scandalous waste of NHS funding.

No wonder there is not enough “in the pot” for life-saving treatment for those who need it.

Is this common practice, or does their local surgery simply have money to waste?
