To be honest I decided to drop in at the GP's on my way and explained the situation so the receptionist got the doctor to sign me a script right away and I used that to get my meds at the  pharmacy   but the pharmasist did say he would have given me an emergency script if I had asked. So it must vary from place to place.

Well, that's a good thing to know for future reference. Glad you got it sorted :-)

The emergency script is available in my area, but you have to pay for it even if you're totally exempt from health charges - about £7.50, if I recall..

I see, well he didn't mention that.
