Pharmacy First is a scheme available for children and people who do not have to pay for their prescriptions and are suffering from a common ailment. 

Your local pharmacist will be able to offer you expert advice and medicines for a wide range of common ailments without the need to visit your GP. No appointment is necessary but you will need to give your pharmacist your NHS number, or your child's NHS number to receive advice, and where appropriate, medicines free of charge.

If you do not know your NHS number you can contact your GP practice and ask them to look it up. To protect your privacy, they may ask you to show them a passport, driving license or some other proof of who you are

Some of the common ailments included are:

Bites, stings, allergies and hayfever

Constipation and diarrhoea



Sore throat

Vaginal thrush

Athlete's foot

Acute bacterial conjunctivitis



Warts and verruca's.
