No. In order to sell a medicine (which is what a local anaesthetic is), even on general sale, you need to comply with various regulations which include listing the active ingredient and including patient information leaflets, etc. The only general sales local anaesthetics in the UK are things like orajel dental gel which are formulated for specific uses and have strictly limited amounts of the local anaesthetic in. Most others are either pharmacy only (like some EMLA formulations) or prescription only.
