Think Pharmacy first

boots pharmacy in haltwhistle is participating in this initiative

A new campaign, Think Pharmacy First, started on 1 April 2009 and is available to adults who are entitled to free prescriptions on the grounds of low income and their children. People over 60 are also entitled to use the scheme. The scheme enables people who receive free prescriptions to get free treatment and medicines for minor ailments directly from their community pharmacy.

The Think Pharmacy First campaign will give patients the choice of going to their pharmacist for a consultation where they will be given advice and free over the counter medicine, where appropriate.

They will be referred to a GP where necessary.
