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:
|Dry Eyes||Dry Skin||Hamorrhoids|
|In-growing Toenail||Intertrigo||Mouth Ulcers|
|Nappy Rash||Oral Thrush||Ringworm|
|Threadworms||Vaginal Thrush||Warts or Verrucas|
