Today I accidentally ran out of my anti-coagulant as I obviously missed calculated how many I needed when packing. Non problem - ring the GP I registered with in Spain, script waiting for me by the time I arrive to pick it up - about 90 mins later - take to Farmacia - who have it waiting - pay 30E and I have a weeks supply. All achieved within 2 hours and NO waiting.
In the U.K. It has taken me up to 10 days to fulfill a refill!
I love the Spanish no nonesense approach!
