The High Court has told the NHS in England it can fund a drug that can prevent HIV - after health bosses argued it was not their responsibility

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36946000

Thoughts in this gentlemen? 400/month treatment cost to support unprotected anal sex.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Hunt...I can't even be bothered to rant about him.

Edit: post title changed

It's really got the temperature of my urine up, this story has.

Several members of my family were refused cancer treatment methods due to cost, yet, on the NHS you can run around having unprotected sex at taxpayer expense.

Prescribe condoms FFS, not 400/month tablets.

I can't seem to comprehend why they're funding this above treatments for dementia, cancers and other illnesses. If you ask me I think it'll be seen as a 'morning after pill' to some and we could see an increase in people contracting the disease as a result which in turn will cost the NHS a fortune.

I'd like a pill that stops me from getting fat/diabeties/cancer if I abuse my body? Seems fair!

I'm sure the NHS could provide MDMA to us much cheaper than the PrEP stuff.

NHS spends 87m on paracetamol... at 20 TIMES the high street cost: Doctors wrote 22.9m prescriptions last year at an average cost of 3.83 each. The NHS spent over 87million handing out paracetamol last year - with the average prescription costing 20 times the price of a packet in the supermarket.

NHS buyers are crap and need a slap. End of.

They pay over the odds for all drugs.

Absolutely outrageous. I was aware of this previously. I understand it costs the NHS approximately 10 to prescribe a box of paracetamol to patient. It's 16p in Tesco FFS.

Lets not forget all the free stuff they give away at pharmacies when people turn up with their benefits papers.

I'm not that arsed about pharmacies giving people on benefits free stuff. We get free prescriptions in Scotland anyway.

Rather than prescribe a packet of condoms, they'll hand out an expensive course of medication because these select group of people have chosen to lead a dangerous lifestyle.

The 'Life by the Sword..." saying is so appropriate

I agree. I should be ended immediately. As a minimum, it should be judged against earnings or full price. Convinced it would stop many prescriptions and even many needless visits to the doctor.

I'm pretty sure Westminster wouldn't allow English tax to be spent like this in Scotland however, if it is, even more reason to end it promptly.

Well when i worked in the electricity market, the south pay a premium in network distribution to fund isolated properties in the north as the cost is alot higher per house for connection, for transmission etc.

Its fairly standard practice to share the weight.

I would agree to contribute if i got the same level of service. I think UK system which is salary and age based works well.

Or if like me you pay the annual prescription cost for meds it makes sense. 104 quid for the year and covers everything.

He also probably paid his taxs for 50 years so earned that.

Im a strong believer its the system that is brocken not the users.

Would you pay for something you could get free? Its the same as people that are self employed. I have people that earn twice as much as me but pay half the tax. Who can blame them? It gives their family a better life. Its the system that is broken not the people.
