Minor Ailments (Pharmacy First)
Advice and suitable remedies for common and minor ailments is available from most pharmacies. Your pharmacist is a qualified health care professional who can also advise you about a wide range of medicines that you can buy without a prescription and any side effects of medication which you are taking.
