“You don’t need an appointment to speak with the pharmacist, who’ll be happy to help you advise you on the best course of action for your condition. Many pharmacies have a private room where you can speak confidentially and won’t be overheard.”
Dr Andrew Hassan, a member of the Governing Body of NHS West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “The pharmacist can help you better enjoy the Easter holidays by advising you on what medicine cabinet essentials you should keep at home.
"By being prepared you can more easily deal with unexpected minor illness or injury. Stocking up on the basics such as paracetamol, anti-diarrhoea medicine, indigestion remedy and sticking plasters needn’t cost much.
“If you have forgotten to order your regular medicine from your GP and run out over the weekend your pharmacist may be able to help by providing an emergency supply. You’ll need to take your repeat slip or empty pack with you to show the pharmacist what you usually take.”
