Pharmacies

There are 124 Pharmacies in Leicester. Pharmacists play a key role in providing quality healthcare. They are expert in medicines, and use their clinical expertise, together with their practical knowledge to advise you on common problems, such as coughs, colds, aches and pains, as well as healthy eating and stopping smoking. Pharmacists can also help you decide whether you need to see a health professional. All pharmacists have to be registered with the regulatory body for pharmacy professionals, the General Pharmaceutical Council. Pharmacies provide the services like dispensing, repeat dispensing, disposal of unwanted or out-of-date medicines and advice on treatment of minor conditions and healthy living. You can talk to your pharmacist in confidence, even about the most personal symptoms, and you don't need to make an appointment. It's possible to walk into any community pharmacy and ask to speak with the pharmacist.


What are GPs? : GP stands for 'General Practitioner' who can deal with all type of medical conditions and mainly treats acute (short duration) and chronic (diseases that lasts for more than three months) illnesses. GPs provide routine health care checkups like physical examinations, vaccinations, simple surgical operations etc. They also provide advice on diet and smoking, preventive care and health education to patients.
GPs are not specialized in any one particular area. So, if they can't deal with any particular medical condition, they refer the patient to the specialized hospital for tests, treatment, or to see a consultant with specialist knowledge.

What is a GP Practice? : GPs usually work in practices (a physical location / clinic) as part of a team that includes nurses, healthcare assistants, practice managers, receptionists and other staff. Practices also work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as health visitors, midwives, mental health services and social care services. GP practices should make information about their services easily available to their patients. Our website also provide detailed information about General Practices which is easy to comprehend and freely accessible.
