Pharmacists are qualified health professionals and have the knowledge and skills to help and advise you on the best course of action without the need to see a doctor. Pharmacies are accessible and convenient as many of them are open late nights and weekends. There is no need for an appointment to speak to the pharmacist; just pop in any time and they will be happy to help you.
