LOCAL PHARMACY: All pharmacies offer general medical advice for minor ailments. We utilise the Minor Ailments Scheme in order to maximize our doctor’s appointments.

MINOR AILMENTS: All pharmacists can treat many common health complaints. They can give advice or, where     appropriate, prescribe FREE medicines that will help to clear up the problem. If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP, your pharmacist will recognise this and advise you to see your GP.

If everybody went to a pharmacist with common health problems, more time would be freed for our GPs. This might make it easier to get a convenient appointment with your GP next time you need one.


So if you have a common health problem shown below please be aware that we may advise you to visit the pharmacy instead of booking an appointment.
