Pharmacies

Also in Pharmacies:

Drop into your local pharmacy anytime to get expert advice or information on healthcare, as well as help with your medicines.

There's no need to make an appointment.

Your pharmacist sells a wide range of over the counter medicines to treat minor ailments such as hay fever, athlete's foot and cold sores.

All pharmacies dispense prescriptions and most supply emergency contraception on the NHS.

If you run out of your regular medicines and can't obtain a prescription from your GP, your pharmacist may be able to dispense an urgent repeat supply.

A list of pharmacies in the region is also available on Grampian CareData.  This site also has a list of pharmacies that are open on a Sunday.
