This service is ideally suited for children, over 65 year olds and those who are entitled to free prescriptions.
A new scheme has been set up which allows people with certain ailments to go straight to their pharmacist to receive a consultation without needing to visit their GP to get a prescription first.
Your pharmacist is a qualified healthcare professional who can help with your health problems and will offer you a private space to talk with you about your symptoms. If it is something more serious, then they will direct you appropriately.
Below is a list of ailments that your local pharmacist should be able to give you treatment for:
|- Constipation||- Diarrhoea|
|- Insect bites & sting||- Allergic rhinitis/Hayfever|
|- Headlice||- Mouth ulcers|
|- Haemorrhoids||- Vaginal thrush|
|- Dyspepsia||- Nappy rash|

Healthier Together is a free website and app developed by local healthcare professionals to help parents keep their children safe and healthy.
The website gives parents access to know where to go when their child is ill, providing information from local healthcare professionals about what might be wrong, what to do and where to go for help.

Change of Details?
If you move house or change your name, please let the surgery know as soon as possible. If you move outside our practice area, you may need to register with a surgery in your new locale. Our receptionists will be happy to assist you with this.
It would also help us a great deal if you gave us your home telephone number, especially if you are ex-directory, in case we need to contact you for any reason. Knowing your mobile number, if you have one, would also be helpful.
