A new free NHS service means you can now access advice and medicines from a nearby pharmacy – without needing a GP appointment.

🆘🤔 Do you or your child have :

  • sinusitis
  • sore throat
  • earache
  • impetigo
  • infected inset bite
  • shingles
  • urinary tract infection

Our patient assistance team will signpost you to the pharmacy first if you suffer from any of the symptoms above. This way, we can ensure that GPs’ time is freed up to provide care for more complex cases. You can walk into any pharmacies offering pharmacy-first services or contact us to refer you directly to a pharmacy of your choice.
