There are chances that Boots pharmacies might reduce cost of prescription medicines by one-fourth. It has been claimed by a group of 65 chemists countrywide that with effect from June 1, ten prescription medicines would be sold with reduced price.
It is believed that this change may bring a sigh of relief for those who are dealing with conditions like asthma or cardiovascular disease and are struggling to get the medical card. They would be able to save as much as €300 per year.
This change has been announced by Boots Ireland and is expected to be done looking at the rising competition in the sector. "In response to this, Boots Ireland is the first pharmacy retailer in Ireland to announce a commitment to delivering a clear and transparent pricing structure that will also result in significant savings for our customers”, said Mary Rose Burke, director of pharmacy with Boots Ireland, said, who is of the view that there are many patients who have succumb to the financial pressure recently.
While the news is being applauded by one and all, it would be worth seeing how things improve for the patients in the time to come. It would be even more interesting to see who will follow the suit after Boots pharmacies.
