Who do I see? Get the right help and advice

Self help and advice

Colds and flu, sore throats, upset stomachs, and aches and pains are not a serious problem for most people. You can treat yourself at home or with advice from a local pharmacist, helping you to feel better sooner. This can save you a trip to the surgery and free up time for GPs to see patients with more serious health problems. 

Make sure your medicine cabinet has essentials like painkillers, antihistamines, cold and flu remedies, anti-diarrhoea and indigestion medicine. Keep medicines out of the reach of children.
