Pharmacy Public Health Campaign

Using Services Appropriately- April 2014

We have been working in conjuction with Lincolnshire County Council on their recent Public Health Pharmacy Campaign.  

We are looking to:

•    make people more aware of the range of services available to them, including community pharmacies, if they have a minor illness, ailment or injury to ensure that they get fast, effective treatment
•    support self-care for minor ailments
•    ease the pressure on busy A&E, 999 and GP services and their staff

Self Care - For the treatment of common illnesses ensure you have a well stocked medicine cabinet

Pharmacy - Your Pharmacist can save you a trip to your GP. Health advice and information on over the counter medicines to treat common illness and injuries

GP - Make an appointment with your GP if symptoms persist for three weeks

Walk-in Centre / Minor Injuries Unit - For treatment of minor illness and minor
injuries, no appointment needed

Call 111 - For urgent medical help that isn’t a 999 emergency call 111, available
24 hours a day, 7 days a week

A&E or 999 - for critical or life-threatening situations.
