Emergencies, Medical Insurance & Pharmacies

  • Emergencies, Medical Insurance & Pharmacies

    We advise you to take out adequate travel insurance before travelling to Britain from abroad. Your travel agent will be able to suggest a suitable policy.

    Emergency situations: In an emergency that requires ambulance, police or fire services dial 999 from any telephone and dial 112 from your mobile/cell phone. In the case of a non-emergency crime you should contact your local police station.

    Pharmacies: You can obtain prescription, and over-the-counter (non-prescription) medications as well as expert medical advice at pharmacies (often called chemists). If you are taking any medication, we recommend that you have a letter from your doctor stating your prescription and dosage. Pharmacies are usually open from 09:00 to 18:00 Monday to Friday, 09:00 to 13:00 on Saturdays and limited availability on Sundays but you will find a number of pharmacies open late during the week and on the weekend.
