Have you thought to ask your local Pharmacist?

It’s ‘Ask Your Pharmacist Week’ and this year’s campaign aims to make you aware that your local pharmacy can help with a variety of medical problems. Pharmacies are part of the NHS family and the range of clinical services provided by community pharmacies has expanded significantly in recent years – with several more services being added during 2021. So, for NHS services, convenient access to medicines, support for healthy living and prompt clinical advice, Ask Your Pharmacist! In addition to your Pharmacy, self-care is also important especially during those long winter months. Watch this informative video to find out which recommended products should be in your medicine cabinet to help you self-care this Winter!

Do you Think Pharmacy?

Your local Pharmacy offers a minor ailments service providing advice and treatment for the following conditions:

  • Conjunctivitis
  • Cystitis
  • Impetigo
  • Scabies
  • Threadworm
  • Vaginal Thrush
  • Oral thrush in babies

You can pop into your local Pharmacy for a free and confidential consultation with a qualified Pharmacist without an appointment. Pharmacists can supply some medications that would normally require a prescription from a GP, without the need for you to see your GP.

The consultation with a Pharmacist is free and if the Pharmacist prescribes a medication it will be:

  • free for those who are applicable for free NHS prescriptions
  • no more than a normal prescription charge for those that pay for NHS prescriptions

Your local Pharmacy can also offer advice and over-the-counter medication for a number of ailments including coughs, colds, sore throats, back pain and headaches.

Opening times for your local Pharmacies can be found at www.nhs.uk
