It is estimated that 50 million visits to the GP are made every year for minor ailments such as coughs and colds, mild eczema and athlete’s foot. It is our first instinct to visit our GP surgery when a health concern arises. By visiting your pharmacy instead, you can save on a great deal of time and trouble. Our pharmacist can provide advice on any of your minor ailments and recommend medicine where needed. If your problem needs the attention of a GP, a pharmacist will then refer you on. Yakub Chemist offers a Minor Ailment Scheme allowing us to supply medicines for certain conditions on the NHS. This service will only apply if you are exempt from paying prescription charges. Speak to one of our team members today to find out more about the Minor Ailment Scheme.
