    Hi
    I just wondered if people had seen this story:

    https://www.theguardian.com/society/2017/mar/28/nhs-draws-up-list-of-items-to-be-banned-from-prescriptions

    This does not directly affect me, but I have friends who will be affected. I am wondering if this is part of the narrative to reduce availability of opoid pain meds for chronic pain – as has been discussed in this site before?

    As ‘chronic’ aka long term patients we are obvioulsy ‘expensive’ but we still should have the right to the medication we need to have some level of function and some quality of life.
