Self Care Week highlights role of high street pharmacies

Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are encouraging patients with minor illnesses to make more use of community pharmacists as part of a week long self care campaign. Sheffield CCG are advising patients to seek out the expert advice and treatment on offer at their local pharmacy for common illnesses such as aches and pains, colds and flu, itchy skin conditions and simple eye infections. Many local pharmacists are now offering private consultation areas and no appointment is needed. Sheffield Live! report Baillor Jalloh spoke to Sheffield GP, David St John Livesey.
