Community Pharmacy Referral Scheme
From August 23rd we will be participating in a new initiative to help our patients get timely care from the right professional whilst improving access for all our patients to GP appointments.
The scheme is called the Community Pharmacy Referral Service and it is being rolled out across the whole of Somerset.
If you contact us with a medical problem that would be best dealt with by an experienced, highly qualified pharmacist in an NHS community pharmacy we will offer you a referral to this service. A pharmacist in a local pharmacy of your choice will contact you within 4 hours for a personalised consultation. Our reception team will only offer this service for specific conditions from a carefully defined list.
The pharmacist can offer advice, help with suitable over the counter treatments and may also be able to prescribe medications in some situations. If they feel that a GP appointment is needed they will be able to refer you back to the practice urgently. They will always feed back to the practice about the advice and treatments given after a consultation with you.
Our GPs, nurse practitioners and nursing team will still be here for you as usual. Experience of this scheme in other areas of the country has shown that it helps to free up more appointments for patients with complex problems and those needing more urgent medical attention.
The main aim of the Community Pharmacy Referral Service is that you receive the right care at the right place at the right time.
