Pharmacists and Chemists

DescriptionPharmacists are qualified health practitioners that dispense prescribed and over the counter medications. They can give free expert advice on which is the best medicine for you and can answer questions about prescribed and over the counter drugs. They are also sometimes known as chemists and can also offer advice about common health problems such as aches and pains, skin conditions, coughs and colds, as well as information on healthy lifestyle changes such as diet and physical activity.

For further information about pharmacies, or to find one in your area, you can visit the Wandsworth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) or NHS Choices websites.
