NHS England launched 'Stay Well Pharmacy' on 12 February 2018 to raise awareness of the services offered by pharmacies.
Your local pharmacy is the place to go to get any prescription medicines and clinical advice for minor health concerns. But they do a lot more than that.
As well as helping with common illnesses – like sore throats, coughs, colds, tummy troubles and aches and pains – pharmacy teams can also help with stopping smoking, cutting down on alcohol, advice on safe sex and emergency contraception.
Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You don't need an appointment – you can just walk in. To find a pharmacy near you visit NHS Website.
