Cost of pain killers revealed

Health bosses in Peterborough and Cambridgeshire say they’ve had to spend £1.5 million pounds prescribing tablets for people who could have bought painkillers over the counter.

The local Clinical Commissioning Group has also revealed it spends £1.2 million treating upset stomachs, over £500,000 on antihistamines for hayfever and more than £300,000 treating heartburn and indigestion.

The figures are released as part of Self-Care Week.
