Oh dear! UK’s #NHS in real dire straits. Text just received because of the unmanageable demand to see a doctor. I’ll say it, seeing as everyone else in this whole country is afraid to: THE UK NEEDS TO HAVE PRIVATE GPs. We need an alternative to this unsustainable bloody mess.

Dear,

Our local pharmacies have taken on treatment of the following conditions and should be your first point of contact if you have that problem; Sinusitis, Sore throat or earache (children 1-18y), infected insect bites, impetigo, Shingles and urine infection (in women age 16 to 65y) They are able to prescribe antibiotics when needed with a normal prescription charge
