Can you buy inhalers over the counter in Boots in UK?

I am visiting my parents tomorrow and my asthma has been really bad lately - my inhaler is pretty low and I don't have time to order a new one here. I heard that some inhalers eg Ventolin, are available over the counter. Is this true?

Oh this happened to me when I was visiting my parents and didn't have one and had a really bad attack. I went to the chemist and they prescribed me an emergency one and just faxed my Doctors for the prescription.
