You can now arrange to speak to a pharmacist to help you consider your contraception choices, get started on contraceptive pills, or get your next supply directly from this pharmacy. Our pharmacist can give the same expert advice about selecting and managing your contraceptive pills as your GP surgery. You can talk to them one-on-one in a private consultation room. Will I be able to start or switch to a new contraception method? Yes, the pharmacist can talk through your options and where suitable, can start or issue you a different contraceptive pill. Where necessary, the pharmacist can refer you to your GP surgery or sexual health clinic for other options. I already use contraceptive pills and have it prescribed, so why use this service? This pharmacy service may be more convenient and accessible than booking an appointment with your GP surgery or at a sexual health clinic for your annual pill check or to get a new prescription. You can choose a time that suits you, and the service is free and confidential. The NHS has put this pharmacy service in place as a way to reduce demand on GP surgeries. Who can use this service? You can use the service if: You are considering your choice of contraception and would like advice on your options. You would like to start taking or restart contraceptive pills. You are already taking a contraceptive pill that has been prescribed for you by your pharmacy, GP surgery, or a sexual health clinic and you need your next supply of contraception. What will the consultation include? A trained pharmacist will carry out your consultation. They will ask you the same sort of questions as the healthcare professional at your general practice would ask. An appropriately trained member of the pharmacy team might also carry out some checks – such as taking your blood pressure, weight, and height and asking about your medical history. The pharmacist will discuss any concerns you have. For example, you can tell them if you have side effects from your contraception. If you have side effects, the pharmacist will be able to help identify ways of managing these and, if needed, refer you to your GP surgery or sexual health clinic for further support. Will my information be passed on to my GP? The consultation is confidential, so the pharmacist will not talk to your GP or share your information without consent. If you agree, the pharmacist will send a record of the consultation and any contraception supplied to your GP surgery.
