I put my order into my doctor's surgeyr online and then collect it from my local chemist 3 days later. Can't use a delivery company as work full time and don't want them delivered at work and have to haul them home and husband works nights so don't want them waking him up during day if they delivered to home. So local chemist works for me, luckily is at an independant and are brilliant. If I need it in an emergency they can order in morning and it will be there late afternoon the same day.
One thing to bear in mind is that some things you have in the states we don't have over here. Main one that springs to mind is sure seals. We have seals but they are thick and sort of shallow kidney shaped, not the very thin ones you have over here. However, I have opsite that is on my prescription and also mefix tape. Opsite is on a roll and can cut it to size I want and is clear very thin and usually used for wound coverings. Mefix is a white adhesive tape, again on a roll that I can cut to fit.
