Other Medical Care Services


All pharmacies dispense prescriptions and most supply emergency contraception on the NHS. You can visit any pharmacy to have your prescription dispensed, it does not have to be the same one. If you run out of your regular medicines and can’t obtain a prescription from your GP, your pharmacist can dispense an urgent repeat supply.

Pharmacies sell a wide range of over the counter medicines to treat minor ailments such as hay fever, athlete’s foot, head lice and cold sores.
You can also get expert advice or information on healthcare and help with your medicines. There is no need to make an appointment.
