Extendeding our stay.

Thinking of staying longer over here. However, the wife and I will need to get some prescription meds. Would appreciate some advice regarding the process.

If you take either a copy of your prescription or the boxes of your medication to the farmacia they should be able to supply them for you

If you live in or near Caleta use the Farmacia just down the road from Ohana, the staff in the other one I ma sure get paid a bonus for being awkward.

Are you talking about the one with the doctors attached, opposite Caleta Amigos and in the same complex as the estate agents? 

We usually use the other one next door to the Barcello, but we will have to organise some extra stuff this visit, so if the other one is more flexible, it would be good to know!

Yes that,s the one, much more helpful.

Can confirm, much more helpful. As well as the pharmacy in El Matorral.

I agree, however, if the drugs require a prescription they will not issue them without the prescription and even if it is a repeat prescription they will look to retain the original.

Ask your own GP to email your prescription, print off and take to the chemist.. hope this helps 😁

Note that GPs in Ireland will likely be unable to assist with this. They should, however, be able to fax it to the pharmacy here.

I was informed that some regulation came in there recent-ish which prevents HSE registered providers from sending information electronically except to authorised HSE addresses. IE, they can send to your doctor's surgery if you're at a consultant or vice versa, but neither can email you personally. Postal service is unchanged, and faxes supposedly work.

Perhaps they would be more flexible regards healthcare providers outside of the country versus to national patients if fax is unavailable, though? I only mention this because I wouldn't want anyone to get caught short thinking that everything can happen quickly with email when that might not be the case.

Looks like you assume I live here. Over here on a break. Sounds like I need to see a Spanish doctor to get a prescription. Is that the case ?  Get my doctor to  send an email prescription, lucky if I can get past the receptionist.
