Pharmacy First is the new name for the Minor Ailments Service. This is available on-demand in every one of our community pharmacies in Scotland, and is generally a face to face consultation with the pharmacist on duty.
A new service, which must be booked in advance, is called “Pharmacy First PLUS” – and involves a consultation with a prescribing pharmacist, who has access to many more of the treatments that you would normally get from a GP. They have an NHS prescription pad, and can write you a prescription for a wide range of ailments – everything from UTI infections, to antibiotics for chest infections and medicines to treat coughs and colds not allowed on the Minor Ailment service.
Patients must be registered with a GP in Lanarkshire or Glasgow to use this service.
We request that you book the service in advance using the link below, and before booking a face to face appointment, first try a remote videocall or telephone appointment due to COVID restrictions. BOOK APPOINTMENT HERE
