What's in your medicine cabinet

A well-stocked medicine cabinet can make a huge difference to your life if you or someone at home is feeling poorly or has suffered a minor injury.

Having the right things at home for a range of eventualities can make the difference between speedy treatment and having to leave home to find a pharmacy.

Regular checks on what you have - and the expiry dates - also gives you peace of mind the rest of the time.

We've put together a simple graphic showing a range of essentials. For more information on what you might need, visit the NHS website.

Please read the labels of any medication you store and ensure it is appropriate for you to use.
