Question: 
Do these prices reflect what you have paid in October so far?

janet maynard, Community pharmacist

We were paying over £5.00 for naproxena and still no mention of quetiapine 25mg!

A B, Community pharmacist

Out of interest do you use the psnc generic price reporting tool? I always tell people to use it as much as they can because it gives the PSNC more data to get better price concessions (in theory anyway).
