My lo­cal phar­macy is won­der­ful. After just one visit, the en­tire staff greet me by name, ask after my hus­band’s health and bend over back­wards to help me. Never in 50 years did I have that treat­ment in the UK. KIM PA­TRI­CIA ROWNEY

I can­not praise my lo­cal phar­macy staff enough. Hav­ing had a hip re­place­ment op­er­a­tion in France in Novem­ber I suf­fered a bad in­fec­tion and needed med­i­ca­tion and dress­ings and daily blood tests, all be­ing paid for pri­vately as I didn’t yet have a carte vi­tale. The staff were so help­ful and sup­port­ive of my part­ner who doesn’t speak much French, and ad­vised him well. Amaz­ing ser­vice and to­tally dif­fer­ent to the UK. MON­ICA MORIYASU

Our ex­pe­ri­ence of French phar­ma­cies is com­pletely dif­fer­ent to ei­ther New Zealand and the US, where we cur­rently live. French phar­ma­cies seem to be much more se­ri­ous med­i­cal places, and our ex­pe­ri­ence was ex­cel­lent. They made a se­ri­ous ef­fort to meet our over-the­counter needs, and we came out with a prod­uct that we could use – and it worked.
