Pharmacy First Scheme
Did you know that other health care providers in the local area may be able to help with your healthcare needs?
Pharmacy first is a new scheme which allows people with certain minor ailments and conditions to go straight to their pharmacist to receive a consultation and treatment without needing to visit their GP to get a prescription first. Simple winter ailments such as coughs, colds, back pain, diarrhoea, sore throats and headaches are now being dealt with at your local chemist. As well as winter ailments they can also treat conjunctivitis, impetigo, nappy rash, uncomplicated urinary infections and oral thrush.
If your health is usually good then this service may be of use to you if you become unwell. Ask at your local pharmacist for details.
