It's re-assuring to read stuff like this. As I've said in a previous post it is a battle to get anything on the NHS now!

Inhalers.
If we are talking "Ventolin" or similar they are about 3€ OTC.
I have a "Spirva" inhaler and that is a different ball game as OTC it is 43€ or thereabouts. Obviously pensionista rate is somewhat less.
