When my 84 year old mum died, (praise be to her for having such a wonderful son) I went with my sister to empty her bungalow. We found box after box of her medications, some of which cost the NHS over £70 a box. It added up to hundreds of pounds.
Now my poor old mum would have been horrified at this waste of money if she had known how much they cost. She probably thought they cost the same as a box of paracetamol. Would it be a good idea for the pharmacy to print on each medicine the cost to the NHS?
