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
