Compensation against a Pharmacy

When it comes to minor or even major ailments and illnesses, after we visit our GP we will generally be given a prescription which is taken to the nearest pharmacy to give us medicine designed to  make our ailments better. In many situations these prescriptions are fairly generic and are used to either take away the symptoms of pain or to help treat rather minor problems that we might be suffering including colds, flus and various other problems.
