Aveeno Prescription - anyone else having problems getting it?

I know there was a thread about this before (lack of availability) but my GP is now saying this is not available any longer on prescription. Does anyone know if this is the case?
I think what she is saying is its not on their prescription list as it is more expensive than Cetraban etc.

I got some today so that's rubbish. Although I guess it varies across the country.

we had the bath additive prescribed recently but do you mean the cream? i think the guidance will be local to each PCT

i think it depends on your PCT, I have got aveeno on prescription though I told my gp that I had tried everything else.

Yesterday I tried to get some sunsense ultra sun cream on prescription and was told by my gp that I couldn't have it as it was too expensive.

Thanks all. Will delve a little deeper with the GP.

Turnip do you want me to send you one?

DD has aveeno cream on prescription - has done for a while - but the dr prescribed her the bath oil only last week.

It did take me a while to get the first prescription, though, as not all doctors are persuadable. But get it on repeat now.

Gordon - that's so kind. Do you mean a prescription or a bottle of Aveeno? T'head.
