Pharmacies can help with minor illnesses such as coughs and aches and pains, they can also help you get the care you need if symptoms suggest something more serious.

Please don’t go to your local pharmacy if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 – visit 111.nhs.uk. In common with the rest of the healthcare system, pharmacies are currently under huge pressure, working round the clock to make sure customer get the medicines they need, so please be patient if you are required to wait and please observe social distancing guidance.
