About the service

 Clinical pathways consultations 

  •  Pharmacy First service is the Clinical pathway consultations. This involves pharmacists providing advice and NHS-funded treatment, where clinically appropriate, for seven common conditions:
  • This part of the service can be provided to patients electronically referred by general practices, as well as NHS 111 and others.
  • There is a clinical pathway for each of the seven conditions, which identifies when a patient can be treated under the service and when they should be referred to another healthcare professional; this is what the pharmacist will use to decide if the patient is eligible for the service.
  • In the clinical pathway consultation with a pharmacist, people with symptoms suggestive of the seven conditions will be provided with advice and will be supplied, where clinically appropriate, with a prescription-only treatment under a Patient Group Direction (PGD) or in one pathway, an over-the-counter medicine, all at NHS expense.

For more information please speak to a member of our reception team.
