Pharmacy Minor Ailments Service
All pharmacists are qualified to give advice on your medication and can advise on the treatment of coughs, colds, indigestion, diarrhea and vomiting, and hayfever.
Some local pharmacists can prescribe treatment, including antibiotics, for conditions such as cystitis in women, thrush, conjunctivitis and emergency contraception (the morning after pill). If you do not normally pay for prescriptions you will not be charged for prescriptions from pharmacists. Please contact the Receptionist for details of participating chemists. 

NHS Choices 

If you or your child are coming to surgery with a rash, please tell the receptionist to ensure that you wait in a separate area. Meningitis rash is dangerous to the patient and is an emergency. Bringing your child to surgery may still be the most rapid way to be seen by the doctor. Chickenpox, rubella (German measles) and parvovirus are a danger to pregnant women.
