Can I treat the problem myself? Keep a well stocked, lockable medicines box at home and you may beable to deal with many problems yourself. It may also be useful to havemedicine like paracetamol at work. Check out Medicines box advice onpage 4 for useful medicines to keep at home.Advice and information on dealing with common health problems isavailable from the NHS Direct Online website at www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk and on NHS Direct Interactive on digital satellite TV (simply press theinteractive button on the remote control). Ask your pharmacist Pharmacists are medicines experts and are usually the fastest and easiest wayto get on the spot advice and treatment about many common healthproblems like tummy troubles , allergies , aches and pains and viruses (like coughs and colds ) or for health checks like blood pressure testing.You don’t need an appointment to get advice and you can speak to themin confidence. If you want to speak to your pharmacist privately, away from other customers, many willhave a quiet area. Ask the assistant or the pharmacist. Pharmacists will also tell you if youneed to see another health professional like a GP or practice nurse.To find out where your late night pharmacy is visit www.nhs.uk or call NHS Direct *on 0845 4647 (England and Wales only). * Calls are charged at BT local rates. The cost of calls frommobiles and other networks may vary. Your serviceprovider may charge a minimum cost per call.For patient safety all calls are recorded. STEP 1STEP 2
