Pharmacy First

Pharmacy First - a Useful Service for You:

Your local pharmacy will be able to give you advice about common ailments such as

  • sore throats

  • eye infections

  • hay fever etc.

Many are open 7 days a week and some late into the evening.

How Can The Pharmacy Help Me?

The pharmacy is an accessible health resource for you and your family. Everyone can get advice from a pharmacist and buy medication for a minor ailment or illness.

Many pharmacies are open when you GP surgery is shut (evenings, weekends and on public holidays).  You don't even need to make an appointment to speak to a pharmacist.

A Pharmacist Provides Lots of Services:

Minor ailments or illnesses which can be treated include:

  • Conjunctivitis

  • Urinary Tract Infection

  • Impetigo

  • Oral Thrush in Infants

If you normally pay for your prescriptions, then the standard prescription fee will be charged.  However in many cases the medicines supplied will be cheaper to buy over the counter.  The pharmacy will advise you of this.
