What we do

Almost all of us are within a short walk or trip to a community pharmacy and every pharmacy has a highly qualified pharmacist. Pharmacists specialise in the knowledge of medicines, dosages, interactions and how medicines act on the body. They can answer queries you may have concerning your medication such as which counter medicines are safe to take with your regular medication. Pharmacists are also highly trained in recognising symptoms of disease and can recommend appropriate treatment and advice on improving your health. Pharmacy staff are also trained to give advice on counter medicines.
