So, unfortunately, Boots is not a jazzy shoe store. It’s actually one of the U.K.’s finest pharmacies.
In the U.S., we’re used to going to the doctor for a prescription.
In the UK, you can visit Boots Pharmacy, tell the pharmacist your symptoms and receive the proper medication straightaway.
If the pharmacist thinks you need to see a doctor, they will refer you to the best one.
It may take a while to get used to the idea of not visiting the doctor first, but pharmacists in the UK are trained professionals, equipped with all the necessary skills to help you get rid of any cough or ache.
