Minor Ailments Scheme & your local pharmacy
We are currently working with community pharmicies to streamline the service we provide.
Why wait to see your GP when you can go straight to your local pharmacy? The pharmacists are trained to deal with a number of minor ailments & you will receive quick, expert advice without unnecessary delays in waiting for a prescription to be processed by your GP. This service is free of charge!

2. Headlice 7. Col d Sores
3. Mouth ulcers 8. Treadworms
4. Athlete's foot 9. Groin itch

What will the pharmacist ask?
The pharmacist will ask about:
1. Your symptoms, 2. Other Medication you take 3. Illnesses you have.
This will help them make an appropriate recommendation for treatment. In some cases the pharmacist may need to refer you to the GP but in a majority of cases the pharmacist will be able to treat you.
