Minor Ailments Scheme

 

Medicines without prescription


The Minor Ailments Scheme allows you to get fast treatment for a wide range of common problems (see below) from a participating pharmacy. The pharmacist will consult with you and recommend the best treatment for you.

If you are entitled to free prescriptions, then the medication provided is free. Otherwise you either pay the normal pharmacy price of the medication or the NHS prescription charge, whichever is cheapest.

To use the service you just visit one of the pharmacies listed below and ask for the Minor Ailments Scheme. It's easy! There does need to be an accredited pharmacist on site - this shouldn't be a problem but you might want to phone ahead to check.
