What a pity you can't appreciate the excellent service provided by most pharmacists here. I often find a few words with the pharmacist saves a visit to the doctor, and more often than not minor medication is much cheaper here than in the UK. You will also be offered a choice of a brand name or a generic. It's pretty easy to compose what you want to say before you go, just do an online translation.

Hello , you can get quite a lot of things off the shelf ( for colds, cold sores, cystitus etc. ) from the large chemist in Cap 3000 and the prices are not to bad.

Hope this helps. Juliana

thank you, it's what I've been doing so far but delivery is expensive (£7-£12) and of course you don't know what you are going to need in advance! It's just annoying....

Don't exist, unfortunately. You can't even buy an aspirin off the shelf. The answer of course, is to stock up when you find yourself in the UK.
Or you can use a UK based mail-order pharmacy (a legitimate one - not the fake blue pill types) to order UK off-the-shelf medications.
