Your local pharmacy can offer help and advice on the following symptoms:
  • Diarrhoea
  • Runny nose
  • Painful cough
  • Headache
  • Eye infection
  • Indigestion
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Cold sores
  • Rashes
  • Hay fever

Pharmacists and chemists play a key role in providing quality healthcare to patients.

You do not need an appointment to see a pharmacist and most pharmacies will have a private consulting room or a quiet area where you can discuss your symptoms if you wish.

They can also help you decide if you need to see a doctor, or whether to use any other type of local NHS service.
