BE SELF CARE AWARE!

PRESCRIBING OF MEDICINES TO TREAT MINOR ILLNESSES IS CHANGING

THE FOLLOWING COMMON CONDITIONS CAN BE TREATED AT HOME WITH ITEMS THAT CAN BE BOUGHT FROM PHARMACIES, SUPERMARKETS AND OTHER STORES.

AS YOU WILL NOT NEED AN APPOINTMENT AT YOUR GP SURGERY TO OBTAIN A PRESCRIPTION THIS WILL SAVE YOU TIME.  IT WILL ALSO FREE UP APPOINTMENTS FOR PATIENTS WITH MORE SERIOUS CONDITIONS.

IF YOUR CONDITION NEEDS THE FURTHER ATTENTION YOUR PHARMACIST WILL RECOGNISE THIS AND RECOMMEND YOU MAKE AN APPOINTMENT.
