What will I be asked at the pharmacy? 

The pharmacist will ask you about your symptoms and any other medication you are taking. This is to make sure that any medicines they give you are suitable for you. Any details you give to your pharmacist are confidential.

What if my symptoms cannot be treated by the pharmacist? 

The pharmacist may refer you to your GP if they are unable to offer treatment. This might be because your illness cannot be treated through the scheme, or because the medicine available through the scheme is not right for you.
