People turn to pharmacies more

The number of people who turn to community pharmacies for help when they are ill has risen by over a quarter in 10 years.

Mintel's British Lifestyles 2002 survey, published on 22 January, says that there has been a 26.2 per cent rise in the number of consumers who consult a pharmacist when they have a health complaint. At the same time, there has been a 5.3 per cent decline in those who consult GPs.
