Default Free medication in the uK

I am retired and living in the Philippines. When I was in the UK I recieved free prescription medication.
I have recently found out that because of an arrangment between the UK and the RP that UK state pensions are not frozen.
Am I able to get my free prescription medication from my doctor in the uk and have it shipped out to me here in the Philippines under this arrangment between the two countries?

But couldn't someone just collect you prescription for you and post it ?

Anyway, I guess you'll find that whatever you need will be available in the Pi at a fraction of the UK price.

No; but as Times Up said, it will most probably be a lot cheaper here!
