Think Pharmacy First

Posted on 18th October 2011 | in Community

People in Northumberland are being encouraged to think pharmacy first this autumn. Community pharmacies are a one stop shop for advice and treatment on minor ailments and illnesses including coughs, colds, sore throat, verrucas, head lice and many more common problems.

The  scheme offers patients who qualify for free prescriptions due to low income, the choice of going straight to their pharmacist for advice  and, if appropriate, treatment without needing to visit their GP to get a prescription first.

If you are unsure whether you are entitled to be treated through the Think Pharmacy First scheme, call into your local pharmacy for further guidance.
