Pharmacy First

All of the GP practices within Lincolnshire are working closely with local pharmacists to support you with certain minor health conditions. It may be more appropriate to have your NHS consultation with a pharmacist instead of the GP practice.

The pharmacist consultation will be confidential. Pharmacists are highly skilled healthcare professionals who have trained in medicines and can give health advice and help you manage your condition. If treatment for symptoms is required, the pharmacist may suggest an over the counter medicine.

If the pharmacist thinks you need to see another healthcare professional, they will help arrange it. With your consent, the pharmacist will ensure your medical record is updated with the outcome of your consultation.
