Minor Illness

This is the time of year when coughs, colds and sore throats are very common.  If you have a minor illness such as this please see the section on the right-hand side of the website for some advice on how to treat this at home.  Usually a mild viral illness will improve without treatment in about a week.  If your symptoms do not improve within a few days or worsen then your local pharmacist can help or you can phone the GP for some advice.
