Pharmacists are trained to be able to advise you on a range of common conditions, making it easier and quicker for you to get help without waiting for an appointment with the GP.
How it works
Simply walk into your local pharmacist and ask for some advice.
The treatment for most common conditions is about doing the right things for yourself. However if medication is needed then the pharmacist will make the appropriate recommendation, which will be free for those who are exempt from prescription charges.
Also remember that many pharmacies are open at weekends and evenings
