Lisa woke up with an eye infection
Recently, I had an eye infection that wouldn’t go away with any of the at-home remedies I was trying.
I decided to ring my GP but was told it’d be another week for an appointment so I should try a nearby pharmacy instead.
The pharmacist was great. She came out to speak to me, asking me about my symptoms and taking a quick look before recommending treatment. Within an hour of making the initial phone call to my GP, I was back home with some cream and eye drops!
Now I know a pharmacist can provide treatment and such good medical advice, I’ll make sure to use them more often before I make an appointment with my GP.
As qualified healthcare professionals, if you’ve got any of the following, head to your pharmacist for:
- Aches and pains
- Sore throat and coughs
- Colds and flu
- Skin rashes and red eye
