Pharmacy First

For seven common conditions, your local community pharmacy can now provide treatment and some prescription medicine, if appropriate, without the need for a GP appointment.

Highly trained pharmacists can now assess and treat patients for urinary tract infections (women aged 16-64), earache, impetigo, infected insect bites, shingles, sinusitis, and sore throat.

Community pharmacy teams have the right clinical training to give people the health advice they need, with no appointment necessary and private consultations available. Community pharmacists will signpost patients to other local services where necessary.

Don’t wait for minor health concerns to get worse – think pharmacy first and get seen by your local pharmacy team.

Simply walk into your nearest community pharmacy or alternatively we can refer patients for an appointment. For more information, visit
