Get medical help
111 online can help if you have a medical problem and you're not sure what to do.
Did you know that you can get free, fast and expert health advice at any pharmacy in Sefton?
Our Care at the Chemist scheme is the quickest and easiest way to get advice and treatment from a health professional for a wide range of everyday illnesses and ailments – without even setting foot in your doctor’s surgery.
So, if you have a common or minor health problem, Care at the Chemist is for you. You don’t need an appointment and you’ll find a chemist close to home, with many open early until late.
Medicines are free for anyone who does not pay for their prescriptions – all you need is proof of exemption. Those who do pay will be charged the current prescription charge. If the medicine costs less to buy over the counter than the prescription charge, you will pay the lower rate.
For more information, simply pop into one of the pharmacies who are signed up to the scheme and ask about joining Care at the Chemist.
