Well it probably wouldn't - I'm sure you're all far more sorted and sensible.
It's the story of last minute weekend meds shopping amidst rising panic!
Stupidly i hadn't clocked that my nebules (Atravent and Salbutamol) would run out before end of weekend. Neither had Rita who was out campaigning and we didn't get round to calling 111 til about 3pm. The doctor said she would fax prescription to our chemist Cheadles, but they didn't have Atravent, so frantic calls round all chemists in area, most of whom were closed, til eventually we found one. Back to 111 to get them to fax it there then touch and go hair-raising situation with me, increasingly breathless and frantic, on phone between Rita waiting at the pharmacy and 111 (at least four times as the clock ticked onwards towards 5pm, the pharmacy closing time and each call with different "health advisor") insisting the faxed script now had to go to Swalecliffe Pharmacy, being the only one in the area who carry that drug; Rita in the chemist trying to persuade them not to close and go home to their loved ones at closing time on a saturday night after a tiring hard days work, and waiting in vain for the prescription to come through; someone from 111 out of hours team finally calling me at home to ask what the problem was as she had faxed it to Cheadles hours ago. CHEADLES??!!!! YOU NUMPTY, its SWALECLIFFE Pharmacy, they close at 5 and its already 10 past.
So keeping admirably calm in the face of my rising panic, she faxed it again to Swalecliffe and the call came through to the pharmacy literally as the last of the staff was about to turn the key in the lock at 5.15pm.
So finally sorted and Rita will be round there with box of chocs as a thank you on monday morning.
And tomorrow I will do a stock-take of all my meds. Repeat prescriptions good, repeat of this unnecessary dilemma - never again!
