Emergency medication abroad


#1

Hi,
Stupid situation to get into but…
I’m in Lisbon - passports been stolen. Trying to get emergency travel docs but no idea if I can get them in time to get my flight. May have to rebook flight :- S. May be stuck for quite a few days and don’t have that much extra medication. No idea what to do. Any advice gratefully received. J:-S

Have you got online access to your GP records to download copy of medication/diagnosis? If not take your medication packets to a local doctor and ask for a prescription. If you have travel insurance, phone them as they may be able to help.

There is also a specialist centre in Lisbon, phone numbers on their web page here https://www.medicalport.org/top-private-hospitals-in-portugal-and-spain/lisbon/cns.aspx

Good luck.
