Community Pharmacy England has launched a new video animation about the Pharmacy First service.

Pharmacy First is the NHS service for patients to get help from pharmacies with some common minor conditions, making it simpler for everyone to get healthcare advice and treatment more quickly.

Your community pharmacies can be your first point of contact for your healthcare needs, particularly for the treatment of the listed seven minor conditions.

Expanding on work they have already been doing, pharmacists can now supply an NHS medicine, if clinically appropriate, for: sinusitis, sore throat, ear infection in children, insect bites, impetigo, shingles, and uncomplicated UTIs in women.
