There's been widespread criticism after a family's claim that a supermarket pharmacy refused to supply their son's prescription because part of it was written in Welsh. Now their MP is among those calling the incident "inexcusable".
In response, The National Pharmacy Association says a pharmacist would want wish to make sure of all the instructions on the prescription before handing them out so patients are not put at risk.
James Crichton-Smith reports.
The Welsh Language Commissioner has called on health professionals to work together in order to meet the language needs of patients.
The call follows a case where a pharmacy in Bangor declined to give medication to a patient because the prescription was partly written in Welsh.
The Welsh Language Commissioner, Meri Huws, said, "We often hear the patient is at the centre of the health service in Wales, but this case highlights that the needs of Welsh speaking patients remain on the sidelines and are disregarded.
"It is the health service’s responsibility to find solutions to any obstacles, not to create barriers for patients," she added.
A north Wales couple say they would like an apology from a supermarket giant after they were told a prescription for urgently needed medicine for their 15 month-old son wasn't acceptable because the prescription wasn't in English.
Alys and Aled Man needed steroid drugs for their son Harley who was suffering respiratory problems. The prescription from their doctor was in English and Welsh but when they tried to get it from Morrisons supermarket in Bangor they were told it needed to be in English.
"The Morrisons pharmacist told me that he couldn't do it because it was in Welsh and he didn't understand it", said Alys. "I don't understand this as I am Welsh, live in Wales and there should not have been a problem", said Alex.
The delay meant Harley had to wait two hours to get the medicine he needed. He spent last night in Ysbyty Gwyndd but is now out of hospital.
A Morrisons spokesperson told ITV Cymru Wales, “There are strict guidelines in place regarding the dispensing of medicines from pharmacies. They state that prescriptions should be written in English or bilingually.
"To make absolutely sure the correct dosage was dispensed, our pharmacist asked for a bi-lingual prescription, which once received, enabled him to supply the medicine to the customer.”

The supermarket that would not dispense a prescription at its Bangor store because it was in Welsh has defended its actions. Morrisons says under dispensing guidelines prescriptions must be in one common language and not a mixture.
We have followed all procedures correctly in line with dispensing regulations and the law.
The MP for Arfon, Hywel Williams, says the treatment of the Mann family whose prescription was refused by Morrisons for being in Welsh is "wholly unacceptable".
I will do everything I can to support their case. The Morrisons pharmacy provides a service on behalf of the NHS - a public body - which is obliged to conform to Welsh language regulations. It is a disgrace that a young boy in need of medication should be denied this purely because of a supermarket's failure to allow people to access basic, day-to-day services in their mother tongue.
– Hywel Williams MP
The prescription was bilingual and Morrisons’ behaviour was completely inexcusable. Local people are understandably outraged, as Cymdeithas yr Iaith’s plan to hold a protest shows. I will be keeping a close eye on any developments and I send Harley and his family best wishes for a speedy recovery in the meantime.
A family from north Wales claim a prescription for their sick son was refused by Morrisons supermarket in Bangor because it was in Welsh.
Aled Mann says on his Facebook page that the family took the prescription in on Tuesday as Harley had a chest infection but because it wasn't in English the supermarket said it could not dispense the drugs.
"No other pharmacist in Bangor or Caernarfon had what he needed so we had to go back to the surgery to get it changed," says Aled, then adding in Welsh "Gwarthus o beth yn gwlad ein hunain!!", meaning "It's a shameful thing in our country".
Later he reported: "Unfortunately Harley was admitted to hospital this morning. Who knows, if he'd have had the steroid tablets when he needed them it could have been avoided!!"
Local community councillor Arfon Wyn said the news was "disturbing".
"The parents were forced to dash back to the surgery to try and get the prescription changed. But from what I understand this was too late and the child had to be rushed to Ysbyty Gwynedd for treatment," he told ITV Cymru Wales.
"This is totally diabolical. It is the trend of these large supermarkets not to employ bilingual local people and so such terrible events as this can take place," he added.
The councillor says he plans to organise a protest of councillors and local business people at the store later today to demand a full investigation and a full apology.
A spokesperson for Morrisons told ITV Cymru Wales, "The pharmacy team are looking into it and are working with the store and area pharmacy team to find out what has happened."
Police are becoming increasingly concerned for the safety and whereabouts of a 47-year-old man who has not been seen since Christmas Day.
Richard Thomas, from the Maesgeirchen area of Bangor, was last seen on Holyhead Road in Bangor at about 11 am on Christmas Day.
He is described as being 5 foot 10 inches tall and of a stocky build. He wears thick rimmed glasses and was last seen wearing green camouflage clothing, a hat and Doc Marten boots.
PC Jennifer Williams, said: “This is out of character for Richard and his family are becoming concerned for his safety.”
“We are keen to speak to anyone who has seen Richard since Christmas Day or who may know of his whereabouts.”
If you've already started your Christmas shopping - take note of this bit of retail research: You only have 40 minutes to make rational decisions!
Scientists at Bangor University have been using brain scanners to find out more about how we shop, and there are some surprising results - as Ian Lang has been finding out.

This is a step too far. There's real medical issues that need funding, why not donate the funds to a medical issue rather than shopping?

I agree, there are far needier medical issues that could benefit from that money.

Dr Jonathan Deacon is a marketing expert at the University of South Wales. He says that using a brain scanner to examine shopper's behaviour could help businesses to make more informed decisions about where they put their products, and could remove the problem of too much choice in the supermarket.
