This is an exciting new concept from the NHS that allows pharmacies to provide more treatments and advice.
NHS Pharmacy First Scotland is an NHS service provided by your local community pharmacy.
If you have a minor illness, a pharmacy is the first place you should go for advice.
You do not usually need an appointment.
Your local pharmacist or a trained member of the pharmacy team will give you advice and provide medicine if needed. They may need to refer you to another healthcare professional such as your GP practice, dentist, optometrist or another NHS service if they feel your condition needs further investigation or more specialist care.
How it works
Simply contact the pharmacy
Our staff will help you as much as possible with your query and will either provide advice, provide treatment or refer you to a more suitable healthcare professional. We will need some details as we need to record all advice given.
