One of the reasons we regularly visit the Canaries, is to buy essential medicines which are not available on the UK National Health Service. And if you shop around, the difference in price can be quite staggering.
Below you will find two photographs of the same medicinal compound (which I use daily for headaches) for sale this week at two Transito shops. The one on the left was selling for 30 Euros per litre at the Gigansol Transito and the one on the right at the Transito in Puerto Santiago (by Lagos de Cesar) for 20.99 Euros per litre (and also at the same lower price at the Transito at Playa Arena).
What could possibly justify this difference?
Why are the sick and infirm pensioners of Los Gigantes who are incapable of zimmering to Puerto Santiago and Playa Arena for their medicines being exploited in this way?
Just thinking about it is enough to bring on a headache!
