Try Your Pharmacy First

From this week, people across Orpington can pop down to their local pharmacy for help with seven minor conditions which would previously have required a GP appointment.

Pharmacists can provide advice and, if clinically necessary, will offer an NHS medicine to treat it (NHS prescription charge apply if you normally pay for medicines):

  • Urinary Tract Infection (women aged 16-64)
  • Shingles
  • Earache
  • Sinusitis
  • Infected insect bites
  • Impetigo
  • Sore Throat

Think: Pharmacy First
