Scottish women to get the Pill direct from pharmacist

With the Scottish women having largely shown a notable preference for the contraception Pill as compared to any other contraceptive measure, a radical new scheme now makes it possible for them to buy the Pill, without a doctor’s prescription, directly from High Street chemists.

Monitored by the Scottish Government, the new scheme pertaining to the easy availability of the Pill has already kicked off, with a pharmacy in Aberdeen becoming the first chemist-store in the country to get the green signal form the local NHS board for the direct prescription of the Pill to women.

While it is the a branch of Boots the Chemist in the city’s Bon Accord shopping centre which is currently running the new scheme, the government intends rolling it out all across Scotland if the move is deemed a success.

The sweeping change made in the procurement of the Pill – which family planning specialists consider as a safe and dependable method of contraception - has essentially been aimed at facilitating the nearly 25 percent of the women who are regular users of this contraception method.

The direct availability of the Pill from a specially trained pharmacist, even for women who may be using the Pill for the first time, will spare women the botheration of going to a doctor’s surgery for prescriptions and check-ups; and will, in the opinion of the health officials, evidently help in bringing down the number of unwanted pregnancies.
