Minor ailments and common conditions your pharmacy can help with rather than waiting for a GP Appointment
Every year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that a local pharmacy could help with.
By visiting your pharmacy instead of your GP, you could save yourself time and trouble – no need to book an appointment, just walk in. This also means your GP can focus on treating people who are sicker than you.
Pharmacists can help recognise and treat many common illnesses. They can give advice and where appropriate, recommend over-the-counter medicines that could help clear up the problem.
If they think you need to see a GP for your illness, they will advise you to do that.

Your pharmacy may be able to help with:
- mild skin conditions, such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, impetigo, athlete's foot.
- coughs and colds, including blocked nose (nasal congestion), and sore throats.
- bruises, sunburn, and minor burns and scalds
- constipation and piles (haemorrhoids)

The practice has always been being involved in student education.
You may have been in surgery when medical students have been present.
We are happy to announce that we are now an accredited training practice. Following a deanery visit we can now have speciality training doctors. These are fully qualified doctors who are generally a year or two from becoming a GP.
