24 hour chemists

Chemists across Portugal are now allowed to open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with no extra charge to the consumer, thanks to a new Government decree.

The new law banned a tax of €1.50 charged on night services. According to the Government, this measure, which is in line with what is already being done in several other EU countries, will benefit citizens who now have more access to medicines out of hours.
