The consultation with a Pharmacist is free and if the Pharmacist prescribes a medication it will be:
- free for those who are applicable for free NHS prescriptions
- no more than a normal prescription charge for those that pay for NHS prescriptions
Your local Pharmacy can also offer advice and over-the-counter medication for a number of ailments including coughs, colds, sore throats, back pain and headaches.
