    Thanks,I'm seeing the distict nurse tomorrow,I have a tube of pro shield barrier cream as a carer mentioned it a couple of weeks ago and so I ordered some from Amazon,then I remembered that they can't use it if it hasn't been prescribed,so it just sits in a draw

    I've regularly had my asthma inhalers refused. I only get 30 days worth on a prescription, I work and have to balance when I can pick them up. If I order too early it is refused and then when I collect it is too late to order to get them in time. Happened so many times and then I get ill as I don't have inhalers. I'm assuming it is a budget issue.

    That sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? Just another way of wasting NHS funds and making life more complicated than it has to be.
