Common problems Your Pharmacist Can Help With

Every year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that our local pharmacist could resolve.

It's estimated 50 million visits to the GP are made every year for minor ailments such as coughs and colds, mild eczema and athlete's foot.

But by visiting your pharmacy instead, you could save yourself time and trouble. Instead of booking and waiting for a GP appointment, you can visit your local pharmacist any time – just walk in.
