Treating common colds at Community  Pharmacies could save the NHS 1BN !

We do not have one of these and if they didn't come at yet another vast costs it sounds like a good idea as it would free up Doctors surgeries for the more serious appointments.

Common colds require no treatment.....there is no treatment, save analgesics such as aspirin or paracetamol for associated aches and pains. Time is the only healer ! yes

I was under the impression you could walk into any pharmacy and explain any minor
ailments and the pharmacist would sort you out. If it turns out to be something more
serious he will advise you to see your doctor....that's how it works around our way.

I was sitting in the surgery last week to follow up the result of my twice yearly blood test.  There was a woman coughing and sneezing and virtually threatening to DIE on the spot.  What the hell did she think she was doing in a doctors surgery?  Didn't she have a modicum of common sense?
