Has anyone got any knowledge or experience of EU cross border prescriptions? I am particulalrly thinking about their issue by the NHS in England - the part of the UK I live in - but would be interested more generally.
NHS prescriptions can be presented in other EU countries but these cross border prescriptions might be able to overcome issues more readily.
Presenting a prescription abroad
A prescription delivered by a doctor in your country is valid in all EU countries. However, medicine prescribed in one country might not be available in another, or it may bear another name.
As of 25 October 2013 you are able to ask for a cross-border prescription which is intended for use in another EU country: these are designed to help the pharmacist understand the prescription easily, the ingredients of the medicine and their dosage.
