Pharmacy First

You can go direct to a pharmacy to get some medications without needing a prescription. For the conditions listed on the NHS information sheet below, you can get treatment from your pharmacist without needing to see a doctor.

If you don’t normally pay for your prescriptions then there will be no cost at certain pharmacies. Otherwise you will be charged the cost of the medication but this is often cheaper than a prescription charge.

Medicines which are available to buy will no longer be routinely prescribed for certain conditions.
