Pharmacy First

The Pharmacy First service builds on existing pharmacy services which enables patients to be seen for minor illnesses or an urgent supply of a regular medicine and builds on this to enable community pharmacy to complete episodes of care for seven common conditions. For these seven health conditions, pharmacists will be following a robust clinical pathway which includes self-care and safety-netting advice, and, only if appropriate, supplying a restricted set of prescription only medicines without the need to visit General Practice.
