...cheaper in pharmacy than on prescription.
Have you considered seeking advice from your pharmacist before making an appointment with the surgery?
Pharmacists spend 5 years training in all aspects of medicines before they graduate with their pharmacy degree. They are considered to be experts on medicines and are generally an untapped resource on the high street and they are always happy to see you - WITHOUT THE NEED FOR AN APPOINTMENT. If you need advice about your tablets or if you have a minor ailment, you might consider popping in to your local branch as a first port of call. However, of course, if you prefer, you are always welcome to book an appointment to see a nurse or doctor here at the surgery.
