Pharmacists can also advise on minor illnesses and injuries

Pharmacists are experts in medicines who can help you with minor health concerns.Find a pharmacy

As qualified healthcare professionals, they can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines for a range of minor illnesses, such as coughs, colds, sore throats, tummy trouble and aches and pains.

If symptoms suggest it’s something more serious, pharmacists have the right training to make sure you get the help you need. For example they will tell you if you need to see a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional.

All pharmacists train for 5 years in the use of medicines. They are also trained in managing minor illnesses and providing health and wellbeing advice.

Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You do not need an appointment.

Most pharmacies have a private consultation room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard.

Alternatively you can visit your nearest Minor Injury Unit:► Find another local Minor Injuries unit

Protected Learning Time – Practice Closure

Our GP Practice takes part in a number of Protected Learning Time (PLT) events throughout the year. This dedicated time allows the practice the opportunity to close for the afternoon to carry out essential staff training and address learning and professional development needs for the whole Practice team. This Protected Learning Time allows us as a Practice to improve on our service delivery and ensure we are providing a high standard of care to our patient population.

 

We would like to advise you that the Practice will be closed for PLT on the following dates:
