Pharmacists give expert, confidential advice and treatment. Best of all, there may be a very small wait but there is no need for an appointment. You can get advice about health issues and the best medicine for you, if it is needed.

All pharmacists can:

  • Dispense medicine when you give your prescription.
  • Dispense repeat prescriptions without the need to visit your GP – speak to your GP or pharmacist to arrange this.
  • Give advice on treating minor ailments like coughs and colds.
  • Help you manage long-term conditions such as diabetes and asthma.
  • Give advice on medication, including if you're taking medicine for lots of different conditions.
  • Give advice on staying healthy, including eating healthily, stopping smoking and getting enough exercise.
  • Give sexual health and contraception advice.
  • Provide treatments for minor ailments like head lice and athlete's foot.
