Pharmacy First

Think Pharmacy First offers patients who qualify the choice of going straight to their pharmacist – without an appointment – for a consultation where they will be given advice and free over the counter medicine, where appropriate, for minor ailments. They will be referred to a GP where necessary.

To get free treatment you will need to sign the prescription the pharmacist prescribes and show proof that you do not have to pay. Proof could be your HC2 certificate, or income support. If you sign the form but cannot show proof then the pharmacist will still provide the medicine but checks will be made later.

To receive free medicines for a child on the Think Pharmacy First scheme the parent or guardian must also be eligible for free prescriptions.
