Pharmacy First Scheme
Did you know that you do not need to see a GP for minor ailments? The Pharmacy First scheme offers patients the chance to see local pharmacies without an appointment and if necessary, get the same medications your GP would have given you for the problem?
You are elligible for this scheme if you are registered with a Nottinghamshire GP and are either exempt from paying prescription charges or hold a valid prescription prepayment certificate.
To use this scheme you must meet the qualifying criteria above and register with a local pharmacy.
More information about the scheme and a list of local participating pharmacies is available from our reception- why not pop in for a leaflet?
