Bradford Pharmacy is reminding Zimbabwe residents about all the things they can call their Bradford Pharmacy Pharmacist about. 

Bradford Pharmacy Chief Pharmacist said: “No appointment is needed, and many Pharmacies in Zimbabwe have private consultation rooms so you can ask for advice in confidence. Getting the right treatment early can relieve symptoms and prevent your condition from getting worse. 

If symptoms suggest it’s more serious, pharmacists have the right training to tell you if you need to see a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional.”

1. Treatment advice about a range of common conditions and minor injuries, such as:
  • Aches and pains.
  • Sore throat.
  • Coughs.
  • Colds.
  • Flu.
  • Earache.
  • Cystitis
  • Skin rashes.
  • Teething.
  • Eye redness and infections
If needed the pharmacist can recommend you purchase certain medicines following a consultation.
