Your GP will not usually give you a prescription for certain medicines that are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket. 

You can always get the advice and medicines you need from your local pharmacy without an appointment.

Healthcare professionals at your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns. If your symptoms suggest it’s more serious they’ll ensure you get the care you need.
