Have you tried your Pharmacy?
Every year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that our local pharmacist could resolve. It is estimated 50 millions visits to the GP are made every year for minor ailments such as coughs and colds, mild eczema and athlete's foot. But by visiting your pharmacy instead, you could save yourself time and trouble. Instead of booking and waiting for a GP appointment, you can visit your local pharmacist any time - just walk in. All pharmacists can recognise many common health complaints. They can give advice or, where appropriate, medicines that will help clear up the problem. If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP, your pharmacist will recognise this and advise you to see your GP instead. More information here.
