In order to access the service please speak to the receptionist who will advise your further. The benefit of this scheme means that you will get help sooner.

Should the pharmacist feel your condition warrants GP advice, you would be referred back to the surgery and told how soon you would need to see a GP.

The service is available to all patients. It is free to those who are exempt from prescription charges. However if you normally pay for your prescriptions you will continue to do so.
