Redditch pharmacies just the tonic if you're under the weather say Docs

HELP is available on the high street for minor ailments thanks to local pharmacies, say family doctors.

And they’re encouraging Redditch residents to talk to their pharmacist if they need help and advice managing minor health conditions, avoiding a trip to the doctors surgery.

It’s all part of a ‘Help Us Help You’ Pharmacy Advice campaign backed by Redditch and Bromsgrove Clinical Commissioning Group.

They say pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can offer advice and over the counter treatments for a wide range of health issues.

Jane Freeguard from the three Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning Groups, said: “If you need help to manage a minor condition, your local pharmacy is the best place to go. They offer free expert advice on a wide range of health issues, support for self-care and medicines to treat common complaints.

“Pharmacists are highly trained to offer help and support to patients and they’re available without the need to book an appointment.”
