Some pharmacies provide a sore throat test and treat service for those aged six and over and a list of those taking part can be found below.
The pharmacist will ask you questions to decide if you need a throat swab.
Not everyone will need one.
If it's likely you have a viral infection, which does not require antibiotics, a test won't be necessary and the pharmacist will give you self-care advice.
Please note this is not a strep A screening service.
We advise you to ring the pharmacy before travelling to check whether a pharmacist who can provide the service is available and whether you are suitable for the service.
You can select 'Sore throat test and treat' in the list on the left-hand side.
