See your Pharmacist First

NHS Pharmacy First Scotland will allow community pharmacies to give people expert help for treating conditions such as sore throats, earache and cold sores, along with common clinical conditions such as urinary tract infections (UTI’s).

Rescue Pack

Rescue medication packs for respiratory conditions are not available on request. These packs are appropriate for patients diagnosed with COPD as part of a management plan after individual assessment. Patients who have had rescue packs previously can access them at  clinic reviews or discussion with a doctor or nurse.

Patients who are concerned about their asthma or COPD should seek advice from a clinician during surgery hours or 111 out-with normal surgery hours.
