In England, most of us are within a short car ride or walk of a community pharmacy. That means we all have quick and easy access to a pharmacist who’s an expert in the safe use of medicines.
Pharmacists have to be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council before they can practise. The whole pharmacy team is there to help you look after yourself and have a healthier lifestyle.
“You don’t need an appointment; you can just pop in,” says pharmacist Bobby Mehta, who sits on the Slough branch committee of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society. “Pharmacists are always happy to have a quick chat.”
Pharmacies can also offer anonymity, which some patients may prefer. Don’t miss out on this valuable service on your high street.
