Pharmacist and CPCS

Pharmacists are highly trained health professionals and can give you confidential health advice for a range of common illnesses and complaints.

Don’t wait for a GP appointment for coughs, colds, aches and pains. Just give your local pharmacy a call or drop in – there’s no need to make an appointment. We can also refer you by the CPCS scheme.

Your pharmacists can also help you decide if you need to see a doctor or nurse.
