NHS Pharmacy First Service (PFS)

We are delighted to share some guidance on how we can support patients more effectively. Our role extends beyond just offering advice; we have the opportunity to provide NHS medicines directly, when clinically suitable.

This includes certain prescription-only medicines under Patient Group Directions, tailored to address seven common health conditions that many patients encounter. These conditions include:

  • sinusitis,
  • sore throat,
  • earache,
  • infected insect bites,
  • impetigo,
  • shingles,
  • uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women.

By addressing these ailments directly, we can offer immediate relief and a more convenient care experience for our patients. It’s a privilege to be able to extend this level of support and contribute positively to the health and well-being of our community.
