You may not necessarily need a GP appointment for your ailment.  Community Pharmacists can provide health information and advice on a wide range of ailments.  So if you speak with them in the first instance they can advice whether they can provide a remedy over the counter or whether you should see your GP.

Community Pharmacy can also provide a range of remedies for which you do not need a prescription.  For example, calpol and head lice treatment for children.
