Stay Well with Pharmacy First
Pharmacy First is available to those that are normally exempt from paying prescription charges and are registered with a local GP in the participating area. It means that those eligible don’t have to pay for certain over-the-counter medicines. Instead patients can see a qualified health professional at a pharmacy rather than make a GP appointment.
It is estimated that each year 57 million visits to the GP are made for common ailments. These same ailments would get the same treatment if the patient had visited a pharmacy. So now, by talking to your pharmacist first you can get the advice and medicines you need to get you on the road to recovery without having to see a doctor. Plus there’s no need to worry about having private conversations at the counter. Just ask to use the consultation room. All pharmacies operating the scheme have them.
Pharmacy First is available for children and adults who need medication for a number of common ailments. All you need to do is give the pharmacist your NHS number, or your child’s NHS number to receive advice and, where appropriate, medicines free of charge.
If you do not know your NHS number you can contact your GP practice and ask them to look it up for you. It’s important to note that the pharmacist may ask you to show them a passport, driving licence or some other proof of who you are.
Visiting your pharmacy first will also help to free up valuable GP time, which can be used to deal with more complex or serious health needs. A pharmacist will always advise you if they think you need to see a doctor.
“Often what the GP may prescribe, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, doesn’t need a prescription and if you’re not eligible for the scheme this can often be bought cheaper over the counter. So it’s always a good idea to talk to the pharmacist first.”

Get Involved - Join Dementia Research
In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;
Register the death
If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.
You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.
You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Arrange the funeral
The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.
Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:
These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.
Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.
Arranging the funeral yourself
Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.
Funeral costs can include:
Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
