Why come to Cadham Pharmacy for minor ailments?

 

The benefit to you is the convenience of accessing treatment without having to see your GP first. This means you often don’t have to book an appointment. And even if you do, Pharmacy does not have waiting times as many GP surgeries do. Visiting your friendly high street pharmacy is quicker and easier plus we open on Saturdays!

Secondly, the NHS benefits. Being able to access treatment for minor conditions through your pharmacy eases the pressure off of GPs and A&E departments. So, you don’t need to visit a GP for a cough or lower back pain. Or pop into A&E for paracetamol!

But don’t worry. Our pharmacists are clinically trained to provide these treatments. Plus, we know when to refer you to your GP or to A&E. This way you know that you’re in the right place to receive the treatment you need.

Cadham Pharmacy is able to offer these treatments because we are part of the NHS Pharmacy First Scotland service. This service is open to every patient with a Scottish address regardless of age.
