Pharmacies are an often-underutilised asset we have in the local community; they are a place where we can go to get free health advice from a trained professional, and purchase treatments to manage or cure minor ailments. Your local pharmacy is a one-stop healthcare hub in the community where you can get help and advice quickly – often without an appointment.
So, how can your local pharmacy in Birmingham help you? Read on to find out!
How your pharmacy can help: Birmingham
Pharmacies aren’t just a place to get prescriptions fulfilled or to go to get emergency medicine in the middle of the night. Pharmacies offer a huge range of services – here are some of the services we offer at King’s Pharmacy in Birmingham.
We offer a wide range of essential skincare products including SPF products to protect your skin, and that of your loved ones, from harmful UV rays. We can also help with skin issues like acne and eczema.
Our pharmacists can advise you on minor ailments and ensure you get the right medicine or treatment for minor issues like stomach aches, aches and pains, bacterial infections, and more.
We’re extremely fortunate here in the UK that, at the time of writing, almost all adults who want to be vaccinated against COVID-19 have been. Almost 92 million vaccines have been given, which is certainly something to celebrate. However, the virus continues to spread and mutate, so it’s likely that we’ll be dealing with some form of coronavirus for some time to come, and so testing continues to be important. Here at King’s Pharmacy, we offer free Lateral Flow Tests, and PCR testing. Click here to find out more.
