Pharmacy First

Ever thought about visiting your local pharmacy rather than your GP when you’re suffering from things like a slight temperature, head lice, sore throat or hayfever?

The Pharmacy First “Minor Ailments” scheme allows participating pharmacists to prescribe and help with certain simple problems that may not require a direct visit to your doctor. This could save you a lot of time and hassle if you or your young child need some quick and easy treatment. PLEASE NOTE : you must mention 'Pharmacy First scheme' when accessing this service at the pharmacy.

Take a look below to see where you can go for this and check it out next time you are suffering any of the conditions listed below!
