A New Pharmacy Service ....
A New Pharmacy Service is now available to Ayrshire and Arran patients which provides access to self-care advice for the treatment of IMPETIGO (bacterial skin infection) for children and adults aged from 2 years and simple Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) in non-pregnant women aged 16 - 64 years old.
PLEASE NOTE: You do NOT need to take a urine sample to the Chemist.
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.

There is also an option for a drop-in at the Pharmacy.. check with local Pharmacies.
