Pharmacies in Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven offer a service called Pharmacy First that gives you more choice and easier access when you need health advice and treatment.
Your local pharmacy can give you advice and, if needed, medicines for common illnesses, so you don’t have to make an appointment with your GP.
Your pharmacist is a qualified health care professional who can help with your health problems. The pharmacist may offer you a private space to talk to you about your symptoms.
If you don’t normally pay for your prescriptions, then any medicines prescribed by your pharmacist will be free.
If you do pay for your prescriptions, then the cost of the medicines should be less that the prescription charge and you get advice from your pharmacist.
Just ask your pharmacist about Pharmacy First.
