Your local pharmacy team are healthcare professionals who can give you clinical advice and treatment for common illnesses such as coughs, colds, aches and pains. They can also help you decide whether you need to contact other healthcare services such as contraception and sexual health. Most pharmacies can help you understand the medicines you’ve been prescribed and review your prescriptions if you have any concerns.
