If your pharmacist feels that it is better for you to see your GP or another healthcare professional then they may tell you to make an appointment.

Can I still go to my GP?

You can still make an appointment with your GP if you feel this is more suitable.

Can I still go to other pharmacies? 

You can use other pharmacies to buy medicines or to pick up your prescriptions but remember;

• You can only use the service at the community pharmacy you are registered at; and

• It is safer if only one pharmacy has a record of all the medicines you are taking so that they can be sure that if your health changes your medicines are still suitable for you.
