How Pharmacies Can Help You

When To See Your Pharmacist:

Pharmacies can help with a range of common conditions and minor injuries, such as aches and pains, cystitiscolds and skin rashes.

Minor health problems like this lead to around 57 million GP consultations a year. We could save ourselves and our GPs time if we went to the pharmacy instead. No appointment is needed.

If you have one of these common conditions, your pharmacist can give advice and medicines, if appropriate. These medicines won't be on prescription, so you'll have to pay for them. Your pharmacist can also tell you if you need to see a GP.

 

Here are a few other ways your local pharmacy may be able to help:

  • The morning-after pill. This can work for up to 72 hours after sex, but the sooner you take it the more likely it will work. Lots of pharmacies sell this over the counter after a consultation with the pharmacist. Some may provide it free on the NHS.
  • Needle and syringe exchange services.
  • Pregnancy tests. Most pharmacies sell pregnancy test kits, and some have a private area where you can use the kit.
