Signposting patients to another service provider

WE MAY SIGNPOST YOU TO A COMMUNITY PHARMACIST
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SEE A GP

We are participating in a new approach to improve access for patients to GP appointments.   The aim is to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional, which may be a GP or a Pharmacist.

From January 2022 if your symptoms could be resolved by a booked consultation with the Pharmacist instead of the GP you will be given a same day referral to a pharmacy of your choice.

We think this is a good thing.    Once you see how great your local Pharmacist is - they are highly trained and skilled clinicians experienced in treating minor illnesses - we don't think you will look back.

This will also help us to free up GP appointments for people with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, by the right healthcare professional.

We are keen to hear what you think and will be listening to your comments and feedback about your experience of using this service.
