Inside Pharmacist

Pharmacists have always been an easy and convenient place to go to get advice on a range of conditions and have medicines suggested that can help.

They may also be able to offer treatment and some prescription medication for certain conditions without needing to see a GP. Conditions they can treat as part of Pharmacy first are:

  • Earache (aged 1 to 17 years)
  • Impetigo (aged 1 year and over)
  • Infected insect bites (aged 1 year and over)
  • Shingles (aged 18 years and over)
  • Sinusitis (aged 12 years and over)
  • Sore throat (aged 5 years and over)
  • Urinary tract infections or UTIs (women aged 16 to 64 years)

Pharmacists have always driven to keep the community healthy and now they are able to expand on this with their teams of qualified health professionals. By extending their services they are able to free up GP appointments and give people easier access to care.

You no longer need to wait for minor health conditions to get worse – pop into your local pharmacy and get seen.
