Launch of Community Pharmacy Consultation Service
From Wednesday 18 August 2021, when you call the practice, you will be asked about your symptoms. If this indicates that you could be helped by a pharmacist, you will be given a same day referral for a booked consultation with a community pharmacist at your local choice of pharmacy.
Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals and experts in medicines. They can offer clinical advice and over-the-counter medicines for all sorts of minor illnesses, and a same day consultation can be arranged quickly and at a time to suit you.
This frees up GP appointments for those people with more complex symptoms who need to see a GP.
