Will the Pharmacy First service help me choose the right treatment for my sore throat woes?

Absolutely! The Pharmacy First Sore Throat service at Touchwood Pharmacy Camberley is a convenient and time-saving initiative offered by Touchwood Pharmacy Camberley under the NHS. It allows qualified pharmacists to directly assess and manage your sore throat without the need for an initial GP appointment. This not only frees up valuable GP resources but also provides you with faster access to appropriate treatment and relief.


Who is eligible for the Pharma First Sore Throat service at Touchwood Pharmacy Camberley?

The service is generally available to anyone aged 5 and over who is experiencing a sore throat. However, it’s important to note that it’s not suitable for individuals with certain conditions or severe symptoms. These include:

  • High fever (above 38°C): This could indicate a more serious infection requiring further evaluation by a GP.
  • Swollen glands in the neck: This might suggest underlying issues beyond a simple sore throat.
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing: These symptoms warrant immediate medical attention from a healthcare professional.
  • Suspected tonsillitis: This requires specific diagnosis and treatment from a GP.

At the Touchwood Pharmacy’s Camberley branch we serve the entire community, no matter where you live or work in England. Come in for a quick consultation during your lunch break, and feel free to schedule a call if needed.
