Do I need an appointment for the Pharmacy First service, or can I just walk into Touchwood Pharmacy Northolt?

While appointments are recommended to secure a specific time slot, walk-ins are welcome at our Northolt branch (UB5) based on availability. We understand things can happen suddenly, so we strive to accommodate your needs whenever we can.

My child and I live in Hayes but they have an earache. Can they still visit Touchwood Pharmacy Northolt for Pharmacy First?

Of course! As long as your child is between 1 and 18 years old and their earache is less than 72 hours old, they can visit our Northolt branch (UB5) for the Pharmacy First service. We believe convenience matters, so don’t hesitate to visit if our location is easier for you than travelling further.

I've heard about NHS-funded ear drops for ear infections. Can I get them without seeing a GP first?

During the assessment, our pharmacist will determine if antibiotics are necessary and, if so, can issue medicine on the spot, eliminating the need for a separate GP visit. Think of it as accessing NHS medication through a qualified pharmacist’s expertise, right at your local Touchwood Pharmacy Northolt.
