Pharmacies / Chemists

Visiting your local pharmacy is a great way to access prompt advice and treatments for common conditions.

Some of the work traditionally done by GPs is now done by pharmacists instead. This includes giving prescription-only medication for a number of minor ailments without the need to see a doctor. And, like other medications in Wales, these are also free.

You have to register with the pharmacy to use the scheme, but the process only takes a few minutes. 

Consultations are carried out in a private room and if the pharmacist decides you still need to see a doctor they will refer you.

Common Ailments covered by the scheme:

Acne Athlete's Foot Backache
Chickenpox Cold Sores Colic
Conjunctivitis (Bacterial) Constipation Diarrhoea
Dry Eyes Dry Skin Hamorrhoids
Hayfever Head Lice Indigestion
In-growing Toenail Intertrigo Mouth Ulcers
