Local Pharmacies

Your local pharmacist can provide advice on most common health issues. They can suggest and dispense medicine and other health products.

There are often Pharmacists in supermarkets and many are open late.  Visit www.nhs.uk service locator to help you find your nearest pharmacy.

Your local pharmacy is more than just a shop for medicines. It could save a trip to the GP.

Make sure you have enough prescription medicine to last over the holiday period

Your GP surgery will be closed on Bank Holidays so if you use prescription medicine, it is important that you order any repeat prescriptions you might need but remember to only Tick what you need.  Most GP surgeries need at least 48 hours to process a repeat prescription request so a little planning ahead could save you a lot of hassle.  If you are going away for the weekend - don't forget to take your prescription medicine with you.
