Minor Ailment Service

Pharmacy First

Your Pharmacist can provide free treatment if:

  • you have impetigo
  • or you are an adult woman (18-65) with an uncomplicated urinary tract infection


All pharmacies dispense prescriptions and most supply emergency contraception on the NHS. If you run out of regular medicines a pharmacist may give an urgent repeat supply. This is only in exceptional circumstances if you can’t get a prescription from your GP. Pharmacists can also help with medicines that you have had prescribed before.
