English translation:Emergency or out-of-hours presciption
Explanation:
This refers to the higher pharmacist's tariff which applies to dispensing a prescription out-of-hours. "En garde" = "on-call".

You're right, not great French, but I checked with my partner (who just happens to be a pharmacist) and he's sure that it means that.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Jane. Thanks for that and it makes perfect sense. I was aware of the use of DE garde for a pharmacy or doctor who is 'on call' so I'm assuming this is just an error in the source, unless 'en garde' is also used and I'm just not familiar with it. I'll award as soon as I can!


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  B D Finch: Though perhaps it should be "Emergency or out-of-hours dispensing" as the physician prescribes and the pharmacy dispenses.
2 hrs
  -> yes, that works.. tho' I was using "prescription" as a noun, rather than the act of prescribing. Works either way.

agree  liz askew: I agree with B D Finch, it should be "dispensing"
2 hrs
  -> Except we tend to talk about "prescription charges" opposed to "dispensing charges"
