I have got a bladder infection, GP gave me Macrobid antibiotic which did not work, now taking Co-amoxiclav which i hope will work. My problem is i have now got Thrush i phoned the surgery but was told that Doctors no longer give prescriptions for Thrush and i would have to buy myself. I went to Boots and was told the treatment would cost over £10 , as i am 75 years old and on Pension Credit with a husband who has dementia i could not afford to pay this amount. Can someone please tell me if this is now a new rule brought in by the NHS or is it just my GP who feels pensioners are a drain ?.
