Get Faster Treatment for Minor Ailments with the NHS Pharmacy First Service!

Did you know you can now get NHS-funded treatment for some common health conditions without needing a GP appointment? The NHS Pharmacy First service allows you to visit your local pharmacy for quicker and easier access to healthcare.

What is the NHS Pharmacy First Service?

This is a new and improved service where qualified pharmacists can assess and treat seven specific conditions:

  • Sinusitis
  • Sore throat
  • Acute otitis media (ear infection)
  • Infected insect bite
  • Impetigo (a skin infection)
  • Shingles
  • Uncomplicated urinary tract infections (women only)

How does it work?

Simply visit your local participating pharmacy and speak to a pharmacist. They will ask you about your symptoms and may perform a brief examination. If you have one of the seven qualifying conditions, the pharmacist can provide:

  • Expert advice on managing your condition
  • NHS-funded medication, if appropriate (including some prescription-only medicines)

Benefits of NHS Pharmacy First:

  • Save time:                          Avoid waiting for a GP appointment and get treated sooner.
  • Convenience:                     Visit your local pharmacy during their opening hours.
  • Expert care:                       Pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals.
  • Reduce pressure on GPs:  Helps free up appointments for patients with more complex needs.

Is NHS Pharmacy First right for me?

NHS Pharmacy First is suitable for people experiencing symptoms of the seven listed conditions. If you are unsure, or your condition is more complex, a pharmacist can advise you on whether a GP appointment is necessary.

What about other minor ailments?

While NHS Pharmacy First focuses on these specific conditions, your local pharmacist can still offer expert advice and over-the-counter medication for a wider range of minor ailments.

Extended Hours

One Problem for One Appointment

To be fair to other Langton patients and help us run our clinics on time, we politely ask patients to discuss one issue only in an appointment.  You should not expect multiple problems to be assessed in one appointment unless those problems are all urgent or related to the presenting acute condition. Longer appointments, based on clinical need, are available on request and these will be triaged by clinicians before we book them.

We appreciate your assistance in this matter.

NHS 111

Please note 111 also offer advice if you’re feeling unwell.

They can give you advice on:

  • Where to get help for your symptoms
  • How to find general health advice and information
  • Where to get an emergency supply of your prescribed medicine
  • How to get a repeat prescription

Acute Assessment Same Day Team

For patients who feel they have a medical problem that is urgent and needs to be assessed that day we provide an ACUTE ASSESSMENT SAME DAY TEAM each day (Lichfield Surgery only).  The Same Day team is staffed by GPs and Advanced Nurse Practitioners over the telephone.

A Same Day Team clinician will telephone the patient and assess if the patient has a medical need that requires a face-to-face appointment, and arranges an appointment within a clinically appropriate timeframe, or gives advice on suitable home medication.  Please note that on days when we close in the afternoon for Protected Learning Time the call back service will be limited.

To be fair to other Langton patients we politely ask patients to discuss one urgent issue only in the same day appointment.  Multiple problems will not be assessed by the Same Day Team member unless those problems are all urgent or related to the presenting acute condition. We appreciate your assistance in this matter.

Full information regarding what the Practice considers are and are not appropriate problems for the Acute Assessment Same Day Team are contained in our leaflet Information for Patients May 2017

Home Visits

Patients are requested, where possible, to telephone before 10:00 if a home visit is required that day.

We would request that, apart from the genuinely housebound, all other patients attend the surgery rather than request a home visit because of the extra time home visiting takes. On average four to five patients can be seen in surgery in the time it takes to do a single house call. In addition, the care that can be offered due to the lack of adequate lighting, examination facilities and equipment means that you may not receive as good a service as the doctor may be able to offer if you came to the surgery.

Please note that the doctor may telephone you rather than visit you if this is medically appropriate. Ultimately it is the doctors right to decide whether or not a visit is appropriate for a particular set of circumstances.

Cancel an Appointment

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.

You can also complete our appointment cancellation notification request form. This can only be used if your appointment has been arranged for more than 24 hours in advance. (excluding weekends and public holidays). You can also text to cancel your appointment.

Late For Your Appointment

Please attend your appointment on time, if you are late you may not be seen. If you are not seen you will not be able to rearrange your appointment until the next working day-except in the event of an medical emergency that requires immediate attention.


If you require an interpreter to attend with you when you see your Doctor please notify the receptionist and she will arrange this for you.

Text Reminder Service

We have a texting service which allows you to receive confirmation and reminders about your appointments.

To have this service you will need to register by completing a consent form.

Please remember to update your contact details with us when you change address, telephone numbers and email address.
