Have your say

People are being encouraged to speak to their pharmacist instead of going to their GP or A&E.

Beds Clinical Commissioning Group would like to remind people that pharmacists study for at least four years and are experts in the use of medicines and the treatment of disease.

Pharmacists can help with such common problems as sore throats, upset stomachs and skin rashes.
