Even if there were charges a lot of people would still get free prescriptions, over '60s, children, those that are exempt, etc, so the NHS wouldn't get the full 594,000,000, then there would be administrative costs to take out too. I do think that if a medicine can be bought over the counter then it should be charged for (or they could be told to buy it at a pharmacy) I waited in a long queue at the surgery last year and the lady in front of me was waiting for a script for paracetamol.

I never worked out why they restricted giving things like aspirin on prescription.
