Pharmacist

Most pharmacies are open days, evenings, weekends, holidays, and in many cases, 365 days a year. You can discuss your medical condition with a pharmacist by phone or in person, without an appointment.

Why Wait?

A pharmacist can help you with the following:

  • Replacing, extending or renewing your prescriptions

  • Prescriptions for non-urgent medical conditions such as migraines, flu symptoms, minor cuts, uncomplicated urinary tract infections, minor muscle and joint pains, or cold sores

  • Advice on minor illnesses or health issues
