Your local pharmacy is a good first point of call for medical advice if you are feeling unwell. In January, we introduced the new Pharmacy First Service, which allows community pharmacists to care for local people without the need for them to visit their general practice.
Our highly trained Pharmacists can provide blood pressure checks, contraception services, treatment for sinusitis, sore throat, earache, infected insect bite, impetigo, shingles, and uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women (under the age of 65) without the need for an appointment or prescription.
Pharmacies in Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes have signed up to the Pharmacy First scheme. You can find your local Community Pharmacist by visiting the link below:
