The Minor Ailments Scheme

The scheme means that you don’t need to wait to see a doctor because your pharmacist can give advice and treatment for these ailments, and if you don’t pay for your prescription then you won’t be charged for the medicines supplied by your pharmacist.  Most pharmacies in this area are involved in the scheme.

The scheme includes treatments for the following ailments:

  • Chesty Cough            
  • Dry cough
  • Sore Throat                            
  • Athlete’s foot
  • Headache/earache                  
  • Haemorrhoids
