Being seen at your local Pharmacy

Did you know that for many common problems, instead of booking an appointment with the surgery you can visit your local pharmacy instead?  Not only can this save time, but pharmacies are open at times the surgery is closed and if you don’t normally pay for prescriptions then any medicine the pharmacist gives you is free.
