Under each of these conditions, the pharmacy will be able to prescribe certain prescription-only medicines.
Advice from your Community Pharmacist is always free. You will be seen promptly by a member of our pharmacy team and you can ask to be seen in private. Pharmacists are highly qualified health professionals and are experts in the use of medicines.
Community Pharmacists are also the doorway to NHS services and can advise if your condition needs to be seen by another health professional such as a GP.
