Help us help you by being prepared this winter.
Make sure you don't run out of prescribed medication - order and collect your prescriptions in plenty of time.
Remember colds, flu and most sore throats do not need antibiotics. Treat your symptoms with pain relievers, such as Paracetamol or Ibuprofen, rest and take plenty of fluids.
Your local Pharmacist can also give you advice and treatment.
