Pharmacy First

If you are suffering from one of the ailment we have listed here, you may not need to go to your GP for treatment. Instead of waiting for a GP’s appointment, you can go to your local community Pharmacy First.

The pharmacist will be able to give advice and medication, if appropriate, in the same way as your GP. And there’s no need to make and appointment – you can just go along.

Pharmacy First – set up by NHS Croydon – is available to everyone living or working in the borough of Croydon.

For the pharmacist to make a full assessment of your condition, you will need to go to the pharmacy in person. If it is a child, the pharmacist may be able to make an assessment with the parent or Carer – the pharmacist will decide if that is appropriate.

Your medicines are free if you don’t normally pay for prescriptions – please take proof of your exemption. Otherwise, you will pay the usual prescription charge of £8.05 per item.

If you need more information about Pharmacy first, please visit any Croydon community pharmacy.  To find your nearest community pharmacy call 0300 1000 897 or go to www.croydon.nhs.uk
