Minor Ailment Service - The Role of Community Pharmacy
You may not necessarily need a GP appointment. Speak to your Community Pharmacist first who can provide advice and remedies for a huge range of ailments. Wart treatment, calpol and head lice treatment can be provided without the need to see your GP.
Children and some adults can be provided with a range of treatments for which there is no charge.
Drop into your local Community Pharmacy to see what services they can provide.
