Twelve pharmacists across the Alicante province have applied for a license to sell prescription medication via the internet.

Europe-wide legislation came into force on the 1st of July which eased the restraints on prescription drug sellers, subject to compliance with recognised guidelines.

Of the 20 pharmacies across Valencia who have applied for the licence, twelve of them are in the Alicante Province, and of those, two are in Orihuela, one of which is in Campoamor, and one in Torrevieja.
