Minor Ailments Service

Many minor illnesses can be treated in pharmacies without having to visit your GP, NHS Walk-In Centre or A&E. Our pharmacy is able to provide you with free advice and, where appropriate, free treatment when needed without having to make an appointment or face long waiting times.

You will be able to speak with a pharmacist confidentially within the private consultation room to discuss your symptoms and the best course of action to take.

Some of the illnesses covered by this scheme include: Back-ache, sprains and strains; Colds; Conjunctivitis; Constipation; Coughs; Diarrhoea; Earache; Haemorrhoids; Hay fever; Head lice; Headache and fever; Heartburn and indigestion; Insect bites and stings; Mild eczema and dermatitis; Minor fungal skin infections; Mouth ulcers; Nappy rash; Sore throat; Teething; Threadworm; Thrush.

Where necessary, if you require additional support or treatment our pharmacies can refer you to your GP practice or another healthcare provider.

If you have valid a prescription exemption, all treatment will be free of charge. Please speak to a member of our pharmacy team for further information.
