Will the pharmacist prescribe medication for me?

The Pharmacy First Service allows pharmacists to offer their expertise and prescribe prescription-only medication to treat a range of conditions.There is a variety of medication available as prescribed and over the counter. The Pharmacist can advise on the appropriate treatment depending on the clinical needs of the patient. It is in the best interest of our Pharmacists to help patients manage their symptoms, therefore it is important to understand that prescription medication is not always needed.

Did You Know: For any medication that is prescribed we are offering FREE delivery!  



Below are some testimonies from some of our patients who have used the Pharmacy First Service, either online or by visiting our pharmacy. 

Sophia: I used the service for my son, a very friendly pharmacist, and I received the delivery of the medication on the same day. 

Mary: There were no GP appointments available, so I contacted Pharmalogic chemist. After a consultation with the pharmacist, he decided medication was not needed and instead provided me with advice. This service was far easier than waiting for a GP appointment, and I will definitely be using my local pharmacy again.


‘We are pleased to launch the Pharmacy First Service, and be able to support our patients. It is a great opportunity to be part of the long term vision of the NHS. 
Pharmalogic Chemist currently offers same day delivery of medication for over 200 care homes across the North West. We aim to be able to offer same day delivery of the medication to a lot of our patients. 
Our team of pharmacists are excited to be able to help patients and support NHS plans to recover access to primary care.’
