Stay Well Pharmacy Campaign

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. .

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. But if you think you or your family member are more seriously ill, then a GP or hospital may be more appropriate.

Vitamin Supplements & You

For pregnant or breastfeeding women, and babies and young children. 

Vitamins are really important – they are essential nutrients that your body needs, in small amounts, in order to work properly. You may have read or heard lots of information about what vitamins you need when you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or what you should be giving your baby or young child.
