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.
Marshall Davies, President of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society said: "This confirms what we know about the importance of Britain's community pharmacies as a trusted source of health care and advice. We would like to see this successful record developed.
