Ask your pharmacist

From 'Can you look at my rash?' to 'Do I need antibiotics?' - pharmacists can answer all sorts of health questions.

While you can find lots of information available on health issues like these online, typing in your symptoms and trawling through endless pages of search results might lead you to a wrong diagnosis, or simply not give you all the answers you need.

Instead, people are being encouraged to take any health worries to their local Lincolnshire Co-op pharmacy as part of Ask Your Pharmacist Week. It's a national awareness campaign running until Sunday 17th November.

Play the video to watch Jeff Law, from Lincolnshire Co-op's Cabourne Avenue Pharmacy in Lincoln, talking about just some of the questions the Society's pharmacists can answer...

And here's a list of some of the other health issues Lincolnshire Co-op pharmacies can help with. Why not spread the word?
