Services Database Pharmacy First Service (Bradford Districts Area)

Service ID



This service is commissioned by Bradford Districts CCG to provide the local population with rapid access to a pharmacist who can give advice on, and where necessary supply medication from an agreed formulary, a range of minor ailments, releasing capacity in general practice and providing an appropriate alternative to the use of general practice or other health care environment (i.e. A&E, Out of Hours Urgent Care). The service is aimed at patients who use GP or Out of Hours services when they have a minor ailment rather than self-care or purchasing medicines over-the-counter (OTC). It is hoped that this service will change patient behaviours, educating and assisting patients in how to access self-care and the appropriate use of healthcare services.
