has data for one prescription drug.

Prescription drugs are I believe cheaper here whether branded or not.

The actual prescription costs  (approx.) £6 per prescription item in the 
England (£5 in Wales); the "item" is whatever the doctor writes, it's normally 
for a month's supply.  A private prescription costs whatever the private doctor 
charges (I can look up the Cardiff private GP's charge) plus the retail cost, 
at the pharmacy, of the drug/s.
