The Pharmacy First Scheme enables us to provide treatment for two conditions that previously would have required a trip to the GP practice.
Urinary Tract Infection: We can now provide treatment to females aged 16-65 with uncomplicated urinary tract infections. If you think you may have a urinary tract infection the pharmacy can be your first port of call for a consultation with our pharmacist, they can then provide treatment or if necessary refer you to the GP practice.
