What is Pharmacy First Scotland?
Pharmacy First Scotland provides support for people living in Scotland, registered with a Scottish GP Practice, residents in care homes and care setting, people who are experiencing homelessness and gypsy travellers.
Pharmacy First Scotland will allow community pharmacies to give people expert help for treating conditions such as sore throats, earache and cold sores along with some common clinical conditions such as urinary tract infections (UTI's). Pharmacy teams offers advice, treatment or referral to other healthcare teams if required.
This service will help people access the right care in the right place, without having to go their GP practice or local Accident & Emergency Department for non-urgent treatment.
