Services Database Pharmacy First (PGD Scheme) for Impetigo & Simple UTI in Females (Across the Shropshire & Staffordshire Areas – 3 LPCs involved)
Please note this service is commissioned across NHS England North Midlands Staffordshire and Shropshire Area. Therefore, the following LPCs have the same service in their areas:
- North Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent LPC
- Shropshire LPC
- South Staffordshire LPC
The service has only been added onto the Services Database under this entry to avoid duplication.
The overall aim of the scheme is to ensure that patients can access self-care advice for the treatment of impetigo and simple urinary tract infection (UTI) and, where appropriate, can be supplied with antibiotics, at NHS expense, to treat their infection. This provides an alternative location from which patients can seek advice and treatment, rather than seeking treatment via a prescription from their GP or out of hours (OOH) provider, or via a walk-in centre or accident and emergency.
