How Local Pharmacies Can Help You

Your Local Pharmacy

Sometimes an appointment with the doctor is not necessary; why not try your local pharmacy as an easy alternative to many of your medical questions and/or problems.

They have a wealth of medical knowledge, which is available free of charge in user friendly hours and most of the time without an appointment.

Pharmacists can help with prescription queries eg information about medication including interactions, dosing and side effects. They can help to synchronise repeat prescriptions and can carry out Medicine Use Reviews and New Medicine Service.

 Some pharmacies go further and offer:-
