We know that people visit their GP with minor illnesses which their local pharmacist could help with. By visiting your local pharmacy, you could save yourself the time and with no appointment needed, you can just walk in at a time convenient to you. What’s more, many pharmacies are open in the evenings and weekends. Your local Pharmacist can see you for the following minor illnesses:
- Aches and pains
- Cold & Flu
- Ear care
- Eye care
- Stomach Ache
- Head Lice
- Any skin or mouth problem
If your condition is more serious they will refer you to your GP.
