This is a service the Community Pharmacist's have signed up to.  This is a free service and if you are diagnosed the consultation will be sent back to the GP. 

If you pay for prescriptions then you will pay the normal prescription charge.  If you are exempt from prescriptions charges (i.e. under 16 or over 60) then you won't be charged, but please ask for PharmacyFirst. 

The Reception team will complete the referral to the Pharmacy.  The Pharmcist will call you back (usually within 3 hours) and if they want to see you they will arrange a suitable time for you to be seen.
