Your GP surgery is not the only place you can receive medical advice and in some cases may not be the best place for you to be seen.

Early Diagnosis

Pharmacy

Your local Pharmacy can offer advice and medication for many conditions without an appointment. They also offer Pharmacy First which can provide free treatment for some urinary infections, skininfections and shingles.

Pharmacies also run the Minor Ailments Scheme which provides free medication for certain conditions to children, those aged over 60 or those receiving certain benefits.

Pharmacies also offer emergency contraception, sexual health advice and may offer NHS stop smoking clinics.

Our Pharmacist, Rachel Falconer is available every afternoon to help with medication queries.

Opticians

Opticians are experts in examining and diagnosing eye problems. They have access to much better equipment for examining eyes than the GP surgery and can provide treatment and ongoing referral if required. Locally there is a scheme called Eyecare Ayrshire where opticians offer on the day appointments for new eye problems- just phone your usual or nearest optician.

Dentists

GPs do not have any training in treating dental problems. If you have any dental issues you need to see your dentist. If you are not registered with a dentist please call the Ayrshire Dental Helpline on 01563 578 6666. You can also get dental advice by phoning 111.
