If testing is successful, GPs and A&E will also start to refer patients to the service over the next 5 years.

Patients will continue to have the option to see their GP or attend A&E if they want to.

It is estimated that up to 6% of all GP consultations could be safely transferred to a community pharmacy. This is up to 20 million GP appointments per year.
