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. 

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