Pharmacy Advice

The campaign encourages the public to ‘take the drama out of minor illnesses’ and use their local pharmacy as the first place to go to for clinical advice on minor health concerns such as coughs, colds, tummy troubles and aches and pains.

Research shows that 27% of general practice appointments in England could potentially be treated elsewhere and approximately 18 million of these could be treated through self-care and community pharmacies.

  • In addition, in time for the summer holiday season PHE have published a 'Rabies Information for Travellers' Leaflet through which we wish to raise awareness of the management of returning travellers who have received an animal bite abroad. 


  • Furthermore in relation to the risk of Rabies in the UK from bat bites, a ‘Bat contact and rabies risks’ leaflet has been developed to ensure health professionals and the public know what to do if someone experiences a bat bite. During this hotter weather, PHE have seen an increase in bat bites being reported across England and wish to raise awareness of risk.


Stay Well During Winter

It's important to look after yourself, especially during the winter months. Cold weather can be seriously bad for your health.

If you start to feel unwell, even if it's a cough or a cold, don't wait until it gets more serious. Please seek advice from your pharmacist.

PSA Information

The PSA test is a blood test that measures the amount of prostate specific antigen (PSA) in your blood. PSA is a protein produced by normal cells in the prostate and also by prostate cancer cells. It is normal to have a small amount of PSA in your blood, and the amount rises as you get older and your prostate gets bigger. A raised PSA level may suggest you have a problem with your prostate, but not necessarily cancer.
