Pharmacy urgent medicines scheme 'likely' to be extended


I still don't understand why such a costly and complicated system is needed. Many areas had local schemes where patients walked into a pharmacy and were dealt with quickly and at low cost. For most patients, 111 was not needed at all. Where a patient did contact 111 in the first instance, they were simply told to attend the pharmacy.
