General Care- for minor or persistent health problems
Visit your local pharmacy or make an appointment with your GP
Your local high street pharmacy can provide confidential, expert advice and treatment for a range of common illnesses such as colds, flu, minor rashes and pain relief. They can also help answer any questions you may have about medication you are taking.
Many pharmacies are open late into the evening and all have a consultation room so you can speak in private. They
may advise you to see your GP.
If you have an illness or injury that won’t go away, you should make an appointment to see your GP.
Your GP can provide a range of treatments and can also refer you to other health services if you need specialist advice or treatment.
In some cases your GP may be able to visit you at home.
