Norfolk Pharmacy First Service

Pharmacy First


United Kingdom

Norfolk’s Pharmacy First service now means pharmacies can be the first port of call for many patients who need healthcare advice and potentially treatment for several common health conditions without needing a GP appointment.

Pharmacy teams are trained to provide clinical advice and treatment for a range of minor illnesses. If symptoms suggest it’s something more serious, they can point you to the right place.

Although almost all community pharmacies in Norfolk and Waveney have signed up to the service, not all pharmacies will be offering all elements of the service, and not all pharmacies are offering the service straightaway.

You are advised to contact your local pharmacy before you travel to find out if they offer the Pharmacy First service for the specific health condition you would like to speak to the pharmacist about.

You can see the Pharmacy First Service webpage on the Improving Lives Together website to find more information about the Pharmacy First service. A list of FAQs has been provided to help answer some of the common questions about this service.
