Community Pharmacy Pharmacy First


This PGD allows pharmacists to supply Flucloxacillin 500mg for treatment of minor skin infections as part of the local Pharmacy First Service.

Pharmacists working under this PGD must have completed NES Pharmacy First Training.  From June 2019 it has been agreed that pharmacists who have not attended local training sessions must complete the new Pharmacy First Extension Training for Skin Conditions and Skin Infections in addition to Pharmacy First Training.   The links to Lyme Disease Information below should also be accessed.
