The Pharmacy First service is available for patients registered with practices in the Black Country and West Birmingham.  

If you are exempt from prescription charges then you can access this service which gives you over-the-counter medicines rather than you needing to see a GP to receive the medication on a free prescription.  

Our local pharmacies are a convenient way to get expert advice for the treatment of common ailments (listed below). Where appropriate, patients can be supplied with over-the-counter medicines.

We hope that this service will reduce the number of people seeking treatment via a prescription from their GP or out of hours (OOH) provider, or via a walk-in centre or accident and emergency. 

Patients can register to access the service at the pharmacy and the patients' GP practice will be notified of any intervention via a secure email. Check with your local pharmacy to see if they provide this service.
