    Pharmacy First

    Pharmacy First is a scheme available for children and people who don’t have to pay for their prescriptions and are suffering from a common ailment.

    Your local pharmacist can offer you expert advice and medicines for a wide range of common ailments without the need to visit your GP. No appointment is necessary but you will need to give the pharmacist your NHS number, or your child’s NHS number to receive advice and, where appropriate, medicines free of charge.
