Pharmacies in Southwark

Pharmacists and chemists play a key role in providing quality healthcare to patients in Southwark.

Working in the community and hospitals, pharmacists use their clinical expertise together with their practical knowledge to ensure the safe supply and use of medicines by patients and members of the public.

Pharmacists dispense your prescriptions and other medicines, offer testing and screening for common medical conditions and can advise if you have a minor illness.

Pharmacists and chemists also offer advice on sexual health or stopping smoking, as well as common problems such as:

  • coughs, colds and flu
  • bugs and viruses
  • minor injuries
  • tummy troubles
  • women's health
  • skin conditions
  • allergies
  • aches and pains
  • children's problems

They can also help you decide whether you need to see a doctor or nurse.

You can talk to your pharmacist in confidence, even about the most personal symptoms and you don't need to make an appointment. Most pharmacies now have a private consultation area where patients can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard by other members of the public.
