Do you have a health concern and can’t make sense of the information you’re finding online? People are being urged to pop into their local pharmacies for checks and advice.
Pharmacy services don’t require an appointment and can also alleviate the pressure on GPs and hospitals.
As part of the national campagin Ask Your Pharmacist Week, which runs from November 11-18, Lincolnshire Co-op has created a useful video to help raise awareness of the help its pharmacies can give.
In the video Jeff Law, Pharmacist from its Cabourne Avenue Pharmacy in Lincoln, outlines some of the key questions people don’t realise they can help with. This includes about rashes, what helps with aches and pains and why medicine may not be working.
This includes routine health and blood pressure checks, medicine queries, eye and skin complaints, emergency contraception and minor injuries, although some services are not available at all stores.
