If you’re feeling unwell, don’t wait. Get advice from your nearest pharmacist.
Winter can make existing health problems worse. So if you feel like you’re coming down with something, even if it’s just a cough or a cold, don’t wait until it gets worse.
Act quickly. The sooner you get advice from a pharmacist the better.
Pharmacists are fully qualified to advise you on the best course of action. So go to see a pharmacist as soon as you start to feel unwell. This can be the best and quickest way to help you recover and get back to normal.
Pharmacies in Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven also offer a service called Pharmacy First. Instead of waiting for a doctor’s appointment, you can get health advice and treatment for a range of common illnesses. If you don’t pay for your prescriptions, any treatments prescribed by your pharmacist will be free.
