NHS has just BANNED dozens of prescription drugs - this is the full list

Paracetamol is among the medicines on the hit-list

NHS has been revealed that patients will no longer be able to get paracetamol and other medicines to treat 35 conditions on the NHS.

It includes ones to treat diarrhoea, athletes’ foot, sore throats, coughs, colds, warts and ulcers as well as cough mixture, eye drops, laxatives and sun creams - will be cut out of the NHS’s free prescription in order to drastically save money.

The move comes after the "worst winter ever" with the NHS hoping to save £100 million each year.

Bit harsh on those who can’t afford for their own medicine though.
