From the 1st July a new service is being offered by Pharmacists in the local area. They are now able to prescribe medication for a range of symptoms / illnesses without you having to make an appointment to see a GP. The pharmacist is now able to offer advice and treatment for:
Cough, Cold, Sore Throad, Threadworms, Athletes Foot, Thrush, Fever, Blocked Nose, Earache, Hay fever, Teething, Sprain or Strain
If you are entitled to free prescriptions your pharmacist will still be able to supply any medication free of charge. If you pay for your prescriptions you will just pay the pharmacist directly, without having to come to the Dr for a prescription.
