Pharmacists to hand out emergency medication supplies without GP approval

Comment

I ran out of food the other day. So I phoned 111, they contacted Waitrose, I popped round there and they gave me the food immediately avoiding any delays or queues. My friends say that I must be stupid to have allowed myself to run out of essentials and why should I get preferential treatment at no cost to anyone for being stupid.
