Who knows? I don't. Perhaps the medication was prescribed or recommended for some minor medical emergency that had arisen while visiting Crete: an infected insect bite or a migraine, say, rather than regular prescription medication. I haven't managed to find anything on the NHS/EHIC pages to indicate you might get free or discounted medicines on production of an EHIC. As the rules vary from country to country maybe in some states discounted medicines might be available using an EHIC.peebee wrote:She took his EHIC card and scanned it then gave him the price. Don't know what if any discount he got, but if it is not applicable why did the pharmacist take it from him ?
