The problem with “minor illnesses” is that they can make you feel quite ill and miserable. Fortunately most get better without the help of a doctor or nurse.
- Coughs, Cold, Sticky Eyes and Running Noses
- Diarrhoea & Vomiting
- Sore Throat
- Strains & Sprains
- Your local pharmacist is a great source of help and advice as is the NHS website at www.nhs.uk
- Make sure you have a good supply of paracetamol or ibuprofen from your pharmacy or supermarket
- Most illnesses get better with time and self treatment, but colds can last for 2 weeks
If you need further help with any of the illnesses above, speak to the reception team before making an appointment.
