Community Pharmacy Referral Scheme

What is this new service about?

Our practice is working closely with local pharmacists to support you with certain health conditions

When you call the practice, you will be asked about your symptoms. If they indicate that you can best be helped by a pharmacist, you will be offered a same day private consultation with a community pharmacist.

Community pharmacists have already successfully seen thousands of patients for a consultation for a minor illness, following a call to NHS 111.

This new way of arranging consultations with the pharmacist by a GP practice, has been successfully piloted around the country.
