People often visit their GP with minor illnesses that a local pharmacist could help with. Instead of booking a GP appointment, you can visit your local pharmacy , saving you time and with no appointment needed – you can just walk in.
All pharmacists can give advice and medicine if you need it that will help clear up the problem. If your condition is more serious, they will refer you to your GP.
What’s more, many pharmacies are open in the evenings and on the weekends.
