A community pharmacist can assess you and suggest the correct medication without needing a prescription.

  • Cold
  • Ear ache
  • Headache
  • Blocked nose
  • Coughs
  • Hay fever
  • Sore throat
  • Thrush
  • Thread worms
  • Teething (children under 3 months)

You will receive the correct medication sooner and your doctor will be free to see patients with more urgent problems. If the pharmacist decides that you need to see your doctor more urgently they will arrange this for you.
