Pharmacists can offer advice and medicines for a range of minor ailments, such as coughs, colds, eczema, hay fever and period pain. They can give advice or, where appropriate, medicines that can help clear up the problem. Instead of booking an appointment with your GP, you can see your local pharmacist any time. You can find your local pharmacy here.
Most have a room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard and are trained to tell you when your symptoms mean you need to see a doctor.
