South East London stories
Matt is pharmacist in Bexley. He is a highly-qualified healthcare expert, and can help patients in a number of ways.
He said, “Visit your local pharmacist to get advice on a wide range of minor ailments and injuries. As well as expert advice on medicines, we offer other NHS services such as ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, emergency contraception, asthma inhaler use and advice, chlamydia screening and treatment, healthy lifestyle advice and weight management. This winter, it’s really important that we all get our flu and covid vaccinations, and you can talk to your pharmacy team about this too.”
We also offer private services such as blood testing, sexual health screens and travel vaccinations as well as ear wax removal. Pharmacies will soon be offering a contraceptive service free of charge where you can collect your medication directly from your pharmacy without the need to see a GP.
