Prescription Drugs for Nursery Children

Stop parents getting prescription drugs for nursery children so that they can send them to nursery with prescribed medication otherwise they would need to keep them at home.

Why the contribution is important

Some nurseries will only give prescribed medication.  So people get calpol/cough medicine on prescription as it is free and they can then send to nursery with minor illness.

    The way around that is that Doctor can write prescription so that Nursery has clear instructions pertaining to the child,but parent should pay for prescription at Pharmacy. Parents usually want kids to go to nursery so that they can avoid extra days off work so I see their point,and (thankyou America) in this age of everyone taking you to Court,I can understand the Nursery protecting itself in this way.
