General Practitioners (GPs) and Doctors are located in the local community either in surgeries or practices.

They are often your first point of contact when you have a concern about your child’s development or health. Some of them have special experience in paediatrics. Their role is to keep their patients healthy, to pick up and treat illnesses and to refer to specialists as and when necessary

Remember, it is important for you to feel confident in your GP. As always, personalities have a lot to do with how comfortable you feel with your GP, so don’t be afraid to change if necessary. Ask around for advice particularly from other parents who have a child with a disability.

Pharmacists (sometimes called Chemists) are experts in medicines and how they work.

They play a key role in providing quality healthcare to patients. Working in the community, primary care and hospitals, pharmacists use their clinical expertise together with their practical knowledge to ensure the safe supply and use of medicines by patients and members of the public.

The services that may be available from your Pharmacy are:

  • Emergency Contraception
  • Truss Fittings
  • Incontinence Supplies
  • Stoma
  • Needle Exchange
  • Pregnancy Testing
  • Oxygen

They dispense your prescriptions, provide a range of services related to specific health-related issues and can advise on minor ailments such as:

  • Bugs and viruses
  • Minor injuries
  • Tummy troubles
  • Women's health
  • Skin conditions
  • Allergies
  • Aches and pains
  • Children's problems

Your pharmacist may be a qualified supplementary prescriber. This means that they can prescribe certain drugs without the need for a prescription from your GP.

You can contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 for late opening times of your local pharmacies.
