Minor Ailments

Your local pharmacist doesn't just dispense prescriptions. There are so many ways they can help. For instance, you can get advice and treatments for backache, sprains and strains, and skin problems such as athlete's foot, thrush, mild eczema and dermatitis.

Pharmacists in over 2,000 Boots stores can provide winter flu jabs (subject to availability, charges may apply) and great first-aid advice in case of accidents.

Christmas Indulgence

The festive holiday is often a time when we eat and drink things we're maybe not used to. If you find you're feeling uncomfortable, your local pharmacist can advise on products to help with heartburn or indigestion.

Boots have remedies to help relieve headaches and can advise if you're feeling run down over the party season.


Understanding vitamins and supplements can be really confusing, but pharmacists can make thing a lot clearer with advice on which particular products may be suitable for you.

In the first instance, it's important to eat a healthy balanced diet to ensure that you're getting the vitamins and minerals that the body needs. But if you feel your diet needs a helping hand, you may want to consider a supplement.

Lose Weight Your Way

If you put on weight over the Christmas period, come and talk to your local pharmacy team for support and advice on the options available to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Think about combining exercise with a healthy balanced diet and always make sure you're in control of a sensible weight loss programme. The NHS recommends losing weight at a sensible pace - no more than 1 or 2 lbs per week.
