How Your Pharmacist Can Help

Your pharmacist is there to advise you about medicines, common ailments and are able to tell you when you need to see a doctor.

See your pharmacist if you:

  • need help choosing the right medicine
  • are not sure what is causing a problem or what to do about it
  • are unsure whether you need to see a doctor
  • want advice on how to stay healthy

To help your pharmacist help you, keep to the same pharmacy. That way they will get to know you and you will get to know the pharmacist and staff.

To get advice over the phone and find out about opening times, keep the pharmacy telephone number in a safe place.

Always tell your pharmacist if you are taking other medicines.

If you ask for a medicine, you may be asked a few questions to check that a particular medicine is suitable. Be sure to give all the information required.

With the specialist advice available from your pharmacist, you can treat yourself and save yourself time and inconvenience.
