I was out earlier this afternoon when I started to feel very strange and shaky. I then suddenly realised I had forgotten to take my pred this morning. I quickly got on a bus to go home, but started to feel even worse. The bus stopped in front of a branch of Boot's so I got off and went in and asked to speak to the pharmacist. I asked him if he could issue me with 10 mg of pred as an emergency and showed him my blue Steroid Treatment Card which has all my details including current dosage, contact details for GP and hospital, my NHS number and hospital number. He said they couldn't do it as 'they knew nothing about me' which was nonsense in view of the information on the card, and I had other ID to show that I was the same person.
This seems to be contrary to what I've read on the NHS website. I would have paid for the tablets if necessary. Has anybody else had a similar experience? I'd be interested to receive your comments, especially if you think I'm being unreasonable. I've sent an email of complaint to Boot's.
