Gale Farm Pharmacy Supports Back to School Health
Staff at Gale Farm Pharmacy in Acomb are highlighting the importance of children’s health when the new school term starts by reminding parents to remain vigilant about head lice.

Hugh Lindsay, manager at Gale Farm Pharmacy, said: “It’s really important for parents with school-age children to be aware of the risk of head lice. They are extremely contagious and, quite often, will go unnoticed and undetected for at least a month.

“We offer a range of products for head lice prevention and treatment, and can advise on how best to use them to eradicate the lice and eggs. A coordinated combing effort is a great way to break the head lice cycle, if you have any concerns come in and speak to a member of the pharmacy team.”

You can receive treatment for head lice from the pharmacist at Gale Farm Pharmacy without an appointment. The pharmacy provides treatment for a variety of minor ailments such as, skin conditions, Verrucas and eye infections.
