Triage and treat

The Triage and Treat service is a new service offered in specific community pharmacies to help you if you have had a low level injury.

The types of injuries that can be treated under this service are:

  • minor abrasions
  • superficial cuts and wounds
  • insect bites and stings
  • eye complaints such as sand in the eye
  • removal of items from the skin such as a splinter or shell
  • minor burns including sunburn

They will assess your injury or symptom and make a decision as to whether they can ‘treat’ you there or if you need to seek treatment from another healthcare professional. If the injury is too serious to be treated in the pharmacy you will be given advice about where to go.
