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.
From May 2018 most community pharmacists can provide treatment to women (aged 18 -65) for Urinary Tract Infections and to children for Impetigo.
Children and some adults can be provided with a range of other treatments for which there is no charge.
Drop into your local Community Pharmacy to see what services they can provide.
Trying to get an appointment? - 400 appointments lost in the last three months
Every three months we lose around 400 appointments as patients book them but then fail to show up without letting us know they wish to cancel. This is a staggering 7 weeks of GP and Nurse time over the course of a year. Help us to help you. Your unwanted appointment could be used by someone else if you let us know. Please protect your NHS and use its services wisely.
