Urine Infections & Impetigo
Posted on 3 Jan 2019
A new pharmacy service is now available to our patients which provides access to treatment for impetigo for children and adults from the age of two years old and simple Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) in non-pregnant women aged 16-64 years old.
After assessment, a Community Pharmacist can give advice and information on how to treat the infection and will supply antibiotics, free of charge, if appropriate. Offering professional advice and treatment in pharmacies not only takes pressure off GP services, including out-of-hours, but also makes it easier for people to get help without having to make an appointment. Pharmacies are open six days a week and some operate late evenings and on Sundays.
