Pharmacy First

Lion Health will no longer be prescribing certain medications.

Prescribing of over the counter medications is changing.

Did you realise that you can go direct to a pharmacy to get some medications without needing a prescription?

You can get treatment from your pharmacist without needing to see a doctor. For the conditions listed on the NHS information sheet please view our Prescribing of Over the Counter Medicines Is Changing page.

If you don’t normally pay for your prescriptions then there will be no cost at certain pharmacies. For more information, please view the Pharmacy First Minor Ailments Scheme page on the Dudley Local Pharmaceutical Committee website, otherwise you will be charged the cost of the medication but this is often cheaper than a prescription charge.
