How the service works

Patients can simply walk into their local pharmacy and ask for some advice.

The treatment for most common conditions is about doing the right things for yourself. However, if medication is needed, then the pharmacist will make the appropriate recommendation, which will be free for those who are exempt from prescription charges.

Also, remember that some pharmacies are open at weekends and evenings.
