Prescription drugs

EDITOR, Your reader, R.B. Thompson is not correct in his assertion that all prescription drugs are available in Portugal. I am a doctor on chemotherapy and my medication is not licensed for use in Portugal.

I am due an injection of Prostap in early May but I cannot get a flight back to the UK until 3 weeks later and it would not surprise me if this was cancelled like two other flights I have booked.

I have spoken to the British Embassy about my problems and whilst I received a very sympathetic hearing, I have received no feed back a month later. My other drug which was sent from the UK took 6 weeks to reach me despite the intervention of my lawyer and a Portuguese colleague.

The whole situation has been very stressful.

Surely compassion and common sense should prevail over the bureaucracy.
