Pharmacy First Scheme

You can also now get treatment for seven common conditions directly from your local pharmacy, without the need for a GP appointment or prescription.

The Pharmacy First scheme was launched by the government and NHS England on 31 January 2024 to give patients quick and accessible care and support GP practices.

The seven common conditions are:

  • Sinusitis
  • Sore throat
  • Earache
  • Infected insect bite
  • Impetigo (a bacterial skin infection)
  • Shingles
  • Uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women.

You can get treatment for these conditions by walking into the pharmacy or our receptionist can also refer you to the pharmacy of your choice.

Home visits

If you need to see a doctor and are too ill to travel to the surgery or are housebound, please telephone before 11.00am, (requests for visits made after 11.00am should be for emergencies only). Please only ask for a visit if you really need one. Home visits are time-consuming and there are better facilities for examining and treating you in surgery. Be prepared to give our staff full details of your symptoms. This information helps the doctor assess the urgency of the home visit.
