Community pharmacies are open longer than your GP. They are often open at weekends, and can be open late at night or on a bank holiday. Pharmacists are qualified medical professionals and can give you advice about common symptoms, medicines and healthy living. NHS 111 can tell you where to find your nearest community pharmacy.
