Which services have you accessed at your pharmacy?

Pharmacies play a key role in the healthcare system.

While we may think of our local chemists as a place we go to have medications dispensed, modern pharmacies offer a whole range of other services to customers.

From providing flu shots to offering eye exams, checking blood pressure and even offering assistance with weight loss or quitting smoking, there’s dozens of services you can access – and most of them are free under the NHS.

Only perscriptions and stuff like that. I would welcome it if you could get them on the internet. Maybe Amazon should start doing this?
