Local Pharmacies offer a service which is available to Ayrshire and Arran patients. This service provides access to self-care advice for the treatment of impetigo for children and adults aged from 2 years and simple urinary tract infections (UTI) in non pregnant women aged 16-64 years old.
After assessment and where appropriate, a community pharmacist can supply antibiotics, free of charge, to treat the infection. Offering professional advice and treatment in pharmacies not only takes pressure off GP services, including out-of-hours, but also makes it easier for people to get help without having to make an appointment.
Community pharmacies are open six days a week, and some operate in the evenings and on Sundays.
