“For common health conditions such as hay fever, minor allergies and sunburn your local pharmacist can provide help and advice on the best treatments for you. You don’t need to book an appointment to see a pharmacist for advice and many pharmacies offer a confidential consultation room to discuss issues privately.
“You can also find information on common illnesses and injuries by visiting the NHS website at www.nhs.uk. The site can also help you find your nearest local pharmacy.”
