Ensuring local people have input to the development and delivery of health and care services
Information about current news affecting local people in Tameside and Glossop
Your local pharmacy is the place to go to get any prescription medicines and clinical advice for minor health concerns. As well as helping with common illnesses – like sore throats, coughs, colds, tummy troubles and aches and pains – and provide advice on over-the-counter medicines.
Most local pharmacies have consultation rooms for private conversations. Your pharmacist can also talk to you confidentially without anything being noted in your medical records, which some people may prefer. Getting advice from a local pharmacist is the best first step for a minor health concern. Patients are advised to telephone their usual pharmacy before travelling as opening hours may vary. For further information on opening times please see the information below.
