Ask Your Pharmacist Week 2021
It’s national Ask Your Pharmacist Week!
This year, we're spreading the word that ‘your local pharmacy can help’, raising awareness of the variety of problems that community pharmacists can help with.
Pharmacies are part of the NHS family and the range of clinical services provided by community pharmacies has expanded significantly in recent years - with several new services launched in 2021.
Getting an appointment to see your GP can be time consuming and tricky - but did you know that your local pharmacist can help with lots of minor ailments? With doctors and A&E departments full to the brim, your fully trained local pharmacist could be a great alternative - you don't even need to make an appointment and often won't need to wait for long to see one.
People’s positive experience of community pharmacy during the coronavirus pandemic has raised expectations of what their local pharmacy can offer them.
Pharmacy teams work with other professionals, such as doctors and nurses, to give you the best possible care as part of the local healthcare team.
Visit your local Lincolnshire Co-op pharmacy to receive clinical advice and prompt treatment for common illnesses like eye infections, earaches and itchy skin. You can have your blood pressure checked, get advice on taking new medicines or receive guidance on changes to your prescribed medication after leaving hospital.
