Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines. They can help you with the following:-

  • Minor aches and pains, burns and scalds, head lice, etc
  • Queries about medication dosage, type or suitability
  • Medicine related to hospital discharge
  • Repeat prescriptions

As well as offering clinical advice and over the counter medicines for minor illnesses, your local pharmacist can also provide a range of NHS services including blood pressure checks, medicine reviews, vaccinations, emergency medication and support for healthy living, including helping to quit smoking and maintain a good weight.

Use the NHS pharmacy finder to see which are your nearest pharmacies.
