Introducing the Pharmacy First Scheme!

Exciting news! Your local pharmacies can now prescribe medicines for seven common conditions without needing you to book an appointment with your GP.

These conditions cover stuff like:

  1. Earaches
  2. Infected insect bites
  3. Shingles
  4. Sinusitis
  5. Sore throats
  6. Impetigo
  7. Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

So, next time you’re dealing with any of these, skip the wait and head straight to your nearby pharmacy. No need for appointments, and if you prefer some privacy, they’ve got private consultation rooms available too.

Pharmacists are pros at what they do and can help you out with these minor health concerns. And if you need more than what they can offer, they’ll point you in the right direction, whether it’s to your GP, the emergency room, or another local service.

This is all about making healthcare easier and more accessible for everyone. So, next time you’ve got a minor health hiccup, remember: your pharmacy’s got your back!
