Community pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines to effectively and safely manage a range of minor health concerns. These include coughs, colds, sore throats, itchy eyes, earaches, tummy troubles, aches and pains and many more.
We are very lucky to have some excellent local community pharmacists who can support you without needing to wait for a doctor’s appointment.
If symptoms suggest it’s something more serious, pharmacists have the right clinical training to ensure people get the help they need and can refer patients on as required.
