Pharmacists are warning that government funding cuts could mean some smaller outlets are forced to close while others will have to cut back on their services.
From 1 December NHS funding for community pharmacies will be cut by £113 million, meaning they'll lose 12% of their budget.
In April 2017, it'll be cut by a further £208 million - a further 3.4% cut for pharmacies.
Pharmacists say the cuts will mean closure for some chemists but the Department for Health say the plans are designed to reward the best pharmacies.
"These vital reforms will protect access for payments, properly reward quality for the first time and far better integrate care with GP and other services.
"This is what the NHS needs, what patients expect and I believe what the vast majority of community pharmacists are keen to deliver."

One of the UK's largest specialist heart and lung hospitals is a step closer to moving into its new home, after construction teams celebrated laying cement on the highest point of the building.
Papworth Hospital is due to move into its new home on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, next door to Addenbrooke's Hospital, in 2018.
When it's complete, the new site will have 310 beds and seven state-of-the-art operating theatres.
Today a fire tree was hoisted above the building in a traditional "topping out" ceremony.
"As our patients get older they get other diseases so they can be nearer those specialties.
"More importantly, for the patients of the future we'll be building our heart, lung research and education institute here."

Millions of people across the country are risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
Treating the disease costs the NHS £10 billion a year - but there is another cost - the impact it has on people's lives.
Complications lead to 20 people a day having limbs amputated. Each month it contributes to nearly 2,000 early deaths.
Doctors have now proven that diet not only controls the condition, it can even cure it in some people - although changes in diet are only advisable once patients have sought medical advice.
"Feeling very thirsty or very tired or if you've lost some weight are some of the common symptoms of Type 2 diabetes.
"If you have any of those symptoms then you should always to your doctor to get a blood test."

Bosses at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow, Essex, have accepted conditions were not perfect, but they insist staff were offering good care in tough circumstances.
The hospital went into special measures after being rated "inadequate" by the health watchdog.
"What comes with special measures is a realisation that this is a hospital in distress and they need to support it and work with us.
I have the greatest confidence that out of adversity we will move all of our services to good and outstanding."
With shrinking budgets and increased pressures, it's not the only hospital in the East of England facing significant problems.
The trusts running Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge and Colchester Hospital are also in special measures.
Some health trusts have been taken out special measures after making major improvements: Basildon and Thurrock, Norfolk and Suffolk mental health services, Hinchingbrooke Hospital and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn.
The MP for Harlow has been reacting to the decision to put the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Harlow into special measures. Robert Halfon says that despite its difficulties, the hospital has 'several areas of outstanding practice'.
“I have seen first-hand that the staff and the management team at Princess Alexandra Hospital work incredibly hard and do an amazing job for Harlow residents. As MP, I get many emails and letters from residents who have had an excellent and caring service from our hospital."
The MP says there are four major problems the hospital faces.
- It had more A&E admissions per head than almost anywhere else in the country
- The age of the building means parts of it are unfit for purpose and it needs constant financial assistance to keep it going
- The long term future needs to be looked at
- Recruitment is a challenge because Harlow's close proximity to London and Cambridge. There is a 50% nurse vacancy rate in some wards.
