Thanks very much mag­a­zine for your re­cent ar­ti­cles on vis­it­ing a phar­macy/doc­tor (Oc­to­ber 2015 is­sue), which proved very timely. On a re­cent visit to our hol­i­day home in France, I dis­cov­ered that I had left my med­i­ca­tion at home in the UK. Hav­ing read the ar­ti­cle, I knew the French vo­cab­u­lary for my con­di­tion and was able to ap­proach the lo­cal phar­ma­cist who told me that this medicine was avail­able in France, but I would need to visit the doc­tor for a prescription. She rec­om­mended a lo­cal GP and I man­aged to ob­tain an ap­point­ment the same day (which would be un­likely in the UK) and ob­tain the needed medicine. This en­abled us to con­tinue with our hol­i­day. He­len Hart, Bris­tol
