just situation (England, 1930s--1940s)

Hi! Will anybody please explain the situation below?

My friend went into a chemist's and heard that the nurse attending to one of the counters was wery seedy with a boil on the back of her neck.

Did the nurse work in the chemist's and stood behind the counter? Or she just came to chemist's to buy some stuff?

Many thanks in advance.
