DON'T WAIT FOR A DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT
Go straight to your pharmacy

Barnsley GPs and pharmacies are offering a new service which gives you more choice and easier access when it comes to treating minor illnesses and ailments. The service is called Pharmacyfirst and means that you can get advice and/or medicines for common less serious illnesses from your local pharmacy, without having to make an appointment with your GP.

If you don't normally pay NHS prescription charges, then any medicines supplied under the Pharmacyfirst scheme will be FREE. If you do pay for your prescriptions, then the cost of the medicines should be much less that the prescription charge and you get the same great advice from your pharmacist. Your pharmacist is a qualified health care professional who can help with your health problems. The pharmacist will offer you a private space to talk to you about your symptoms.

The following conditions are currently covered by the scheme: Allergies; Athlete's foot; Blocked nose; Cold sores; Conjunctivitis; Constipation; Cough; Dermatitis; Diarrhoea; Earache; Eczema; Ear wax; Haemorrhoids; Hay fever; Headache; Head lice; Heartburn; Indigestion; Infant colic; Mouth ulcers; Nappy rash; Oral thrush; Pain; Scabies; Sore throat; Teething; Threadworms; Vaginal thrush; Verrucae; Warts.
