Holly felt like she had a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Recently, I found myself battling with a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) that was causing me pain and burning when peeing as well as a high temperature. Despite attempting various at-home remedies, relief seemed out of reach. 

Faced with the daunting prospect of waiting another week for a GP appointment, I turned to a nearby pharmacy for assistance. To my relief, the pharmacist proved to be a beacon of support.  Taking the time to listen to my symptoms attentively, he swiftly recommended a course of treatment. Within an hour of reaching out for help, I was back home with some antibiotics and painkillers! 

This experience was an eye-opener for me. 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 
  • Hayfever 
  • Sore throat and coughs 
  • Colds and flu 
  • Earache 
  • Cystitis 
  • Skin rashes and red eye 
  • Teething
