Your local pharmacy
Your local high street pharmacy can provide confidential, expert advice and treatment for a range of common illnesses and complaints such as coughs, colds, sore throats, ear or toothaches and emergency contraception. You can also get advice on prescription medicines.
Your local pharmacy isn’t just for dispensing prescriptions. They can advise you on your health condition and recommend suitable medication.
To find your nearest local pharmacy, you can also use www.nhs.uk, your local phone directory, or text ‘pharmacy’ to 64746 to receive three free texts with details of your nearest pharmacies. Alternatively call NHS 111
Healthwatch Leicester and Leicestershire also offer a signposting service to give you information and help you to find out about the choices available to you.
