Question: 
Do these prices reflect the ones you have paid in July?

Independent Dave, Community pharmacist

Funny how the cheapest I can source buprenorphone 8mg is 13.97, yet we get paid £8.91. “Pay to help the addicts yourself”....funny, ha ha. 

Watto 59, Pharmacy owner/ Proprietor

I have just sent back 60 Risperidone 4mg at £67 per60...£14.02 it is  an unfunny joke
