Your local pharmacy may be able to help

You may not always need to see a doctor or get a prescription. Local pharmacies offer many of the same services local GPs do.

Your local pharmacy can provide confidential, expert advice and treatment for a range of minor illnesses. They have private consultation rooms and you don’t need to make an appointment.

And, if symptoms suggest it’s something more serious, pharmacists have the right training to make sure patients get the help they need.
