Why a visit to your local pharmacist will help ease the pressure on GP surgeries....(0)

This week’s proposals from leading healthcare professionals for pharmacists to “help ease the pressure on GP surgeries” have been welcomed by many, and would positively serve a purpose.

 

Yet, the focus is on pharmacists going into GP surgeries, when the truth is, patients could receive the same treatment in a pharmacy.

 

At West Heath Pharmacy, and indeed many pharmacies up and down the country, many common problems and minor ailments are treatable by the pharmacist, negating the need to go to the GP.

 

According to this week’s report, there are over 50 million visits per year to the GP for minor ailments such as coughs, colds or eczema and athlete's foot.

 

This is putting an immense strain on GP surgeries, already feeling the pressure of staff shortages and an ageing population, and many are calling for people to Think Pharmacy First.

 

Yet, more should be done to promote the fact that a visit to your local pharmacist can be just as effective as visiting your local doctor.

 

So why go to the pharmacist instead, what if it’s serious?

A pharmacist is able to spot a serious condition, just like a doctor can, and if such a thing occurs, they will always point you in the direction of a doctor.

 

If you go to your pharmacist, you can just walk in. You won’t need to book an appointment and end up sat in a crowded waiting room.

 

A pharmacist can give advice, in a discreet and if necessary, confidential manner. Certain medicines can be prescribed by the pharmacist also.

 

Plans for additional training could see pharmacists being able to prescribe commonly used medicines independently of a doctor.

 

Dr Maureen Baker, Chairwoman for the Royal College of General Practitioners, claims the ‘hidden-army’ of pharmacists could provide the solution.

 

“This isn’t about having a pharmacy premises within a surgery, but about making full use of the pharmacist’s clinical skills to help patients and the over-stretched GP workforce,” she said.

 

What can a pharmacist help with?

 

There are many common ailments a pharmacist can treat you for:

 

 

At West Heath Pharmacy, this service is just one of many we offer and our pharmacists are always happy to give as much advice and care as we can.
