Default Prescriptions to Pharmacies

If one takes a prescription (unused in UK; signed recently by my GP) to the pharmacy in Port de Pollenca, are they allowed to dispense it or can they only action prescriptions signed by Mallorcan Doctors ?

If they will action it, is it free for over-60’s as in UK ?

(Reason for above strange qn - there’s currently a UK-wide supply problem for my specific tablets; can’t obtain any more before departing to PdP, alternatives are possible but are less than ideal).

It really does depend on which drug you need but as far as i know the farmacia will sell it to you, if not they will tell you to go to the health center with your EHIC card to obtain a Spanish prescription (it is not free like in the England for over 60's) although things are often cheaper than prescription rates.
