G.I. Conditions Hub

It's important your pharmacy team can advise on managing G.I. Conditions.

Gastrointestinal conditions are among the top five biggest selling OTC categories in your pharmacy.1 It’s not surprising given that this includes a wide range of conditions, from upper GI issues like heartburn, reflux and indigestion, to lower GI problems, such as diarrhoea, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. It’s important your team give the best possible advice to customers experiencing GI issues, to demonstrate the value of a pharmacy visit.
