If you cannot get an appointment with your GP, have you tried looking at the Minor Ailment Scheme?
The Pharmacist allows easier access to the same advice, treatment and medicines as you would get from your GP, without having to wait for a GP appointment, just call into your local Pharmacy (Chemist) and tell the staff that you would like treatment under the Minor Ailments Scheme.
The following minor ailments are covered under the scheme:-
Dry Itchy Skin,
Minor Burns & Wounds,

If you are registered with a Lambeth GP, have a current exemption form or pay for your medication and are suffering from one of the ailments listed above, then you qualify for this scheme.
