I think he means go to the doctor have then charge you â‚¬50 or whatever just to renew your prescription and then off to the pharmacy. I suffer from asthma as well and is annoying to be told i "have to see the doctor/make an appointment" just to get my standard meds given to me. Especially when your on a tight budget.
I understand the new government is considering bringing in a GP service akin to that in the UK which, essentially, means that everyone can visit a gp free of charge at the point of consultation. Further, this is supposed to be coming in for anyone with a chronic condition, such as asthma, pretty quickly, so that might be good news coming soon.
