When to see a pharmacist NOT the GP

Care at the Chemist

 You don’t always need to see your doctor to get treatment for everyday health problems. The Care at the Chemist service allows your pharmacist to provide medicines for a range of everyday health issues, and they can help with the costs too. If you don’t pay for your prescriptions you can get these medicines free of charge, and even if you do pay for prescriptions you’ll only have to pay what the item costs.

How do I sign up?

Next time you visit your local pharmacy ask the pharmacist for more information about Care at the Chemist and how it can help you.
