Minor Ailments Scheme

The NHS minor ailment scheme allows pharmacies to provide patients with medicines for free on the NHS, aswell as giving you advice and support about how to care for minor conditions yourself.


Anyone who doesn't normally have to pay for prescriptions from their GP – for example because they're under 16, over 60 or on benefits – is eligible for the scheme and will not need to pay for the medicine that the pharmacist suggests.


There are a number of Minor Ailments that can be treated by your pharmacist instead of visiting your GP, including; 







Fungal Skin Infections

Head Lice

Acute Pain



Vaginal Thrush


You do not need an appointment you can go any time the pharmacy is open

Please note - Not all pharmacies deliver the minor ailments scheme so please check with your local pharamcy.
