Your local pharmacist is a highly trained healthcare professional, and can give you advice on common illnesses and the medicines you need to treat them. Most now have a quiet area away from other customers where you can speak to the pharmacist more privately.

Pharmacists and their teams are an essential part of the NHS and need your help and support during the coronavirus pandemic. Always treat staff with respect, they are doing their best to provide you with the medicines and advice you need.

Important information on prescriptions during the COVID-19 pandemic

Order repeat prescriptions in your usual quantities at the usual time. Over ordering of your medicines may mean someone else has to go without their medicines.

Order your usual prescription online or via an app. Do not go to your GP practice or pharmacy to order prescriptions and only phone them if you cannot order online or via an app. You can order repeat prescriptions on the NHS App and through your GP surgery or pharmacy’s online service, where available. You can find out about ordering medicines online at www.nhs.uk

If you have a prescription to collect:

  • If you are 70 or over, have a long-term health condition or are pregnant you should arrange collection by a relative or friend, or ask your pharmacy for advice about delivery
  • Ask any relatives and friends who are delivering your medicines to make sure they have seen you pick up the bag
  • If your medicines are being delivered make sure you keep a safe distance when you receive them.

For everyone else, if you are going into a pharmacy in person, follow social distancing rules and the rules put in place by the pharmacy to protect you and their staff

Pharmacies may have altered opening times to manage their workload. Please check your local paharmacy website or contact them directly.

Sales of some medicines may be restricted in quantity by pharmacies to ensure that there is enough for everyone.

The Minor Ailment Scheme

The Minor Ailment Scheme has been introduced across pharmacies in Salford so that residents registered with a Salford GP can visit their community pharmacist instead of their GP for advice and if necessary a supply of medication to manage a number of self-treatable health conditions.

Community pharmacists are not only able to treat simple conditions but if you don’t currently pay for prescriptions they can issue  a supply of medicines that you would normally need to buy, such as head lice treatments.
