I had a prescription to collect and it was while the Pharmacist was explaining the details of the medication that I noticed them.
Beside the till there was a little pile of cards. They read "If I am sick and unable to talk please read the reverse of this card".
They probably came with certain medications, perhaps diabetics got them free, I thought.
I tried to listen to the Pharmacist but the little pile kept calling for my attention.
I had bought medication, well was about to, could I have a card?
The reverse of my card would say:
For goodness sake stop reading this card and ring the ambulance!!
Why are you still reading this card? Please ring the ambulance!
OK if the above seems too much, prop me up, get my phone out of my pocket, put it in my hand and I'll do it myself.
The Pharmacist had finished his instructions and was asking for my bank card.
I paid and left without been given an "If I am sick..." card
Now what was the right way to take this medication?
