Pharmacy First – Treatment for seven common conditions …

Community pharmacies can offer treatment for seven common conditions without patients needing to see a GP, as part of a major transformation in the way the NHS delivers care.
Highly trained pharmacists at more than nine in ten pharmacies can now assess and treat patients for earache, impetigo, infected insect bites, shingles, sinusitis, sore throat, and urinary tract infections (UTIs) for women aged 16-64 -without the need for a GP appointment.
Available on the high street, community pharmacy teams have the right clinical training to give people the health advice they need, with no appointment necessary and private consultations available.
Don’t wait for minor health concerns to get worse – think pharmacy first and get seen by your local pharmacy team
