Pharmacies and the Minor Ailments Scheme

Pharmacists (chemists) are a great source of health advice and information: -

  • They are experts in medicines and how medicines work
  • They can help you decide if you need to see a doctor
  • They can give you advice about how you can treat and look after yourself.

They can help with: -

  • Medicines – Dispensing them, telling you how to use them safely, advising you on alternatives, undertaking
    a medicines review and providing a safe place where you can get rid of old or out of date medicine
  • Contraception – Emergency hormonal contraception, or ‘the morning after pill’, is available from your
    local pharmacist
  • Minor ailments – Many treatments are available for a range of minor ailments without needing to see
    your doctor. You should see your pharmacist for advice on the following symptoms: -
    acute pain, earache, headache or temperature; sore throat; cough; cold sores; athlete’s foot; colds, flu-like
    symptoms or nasal congestion; conjunctivitis; constipation; cystitis; dermatitis, dry skin or an allergic-type
    skin rash; diarrhoea; head lice; haemorrhoids; heartburn or indigestion; infant colic; mouth ulcers; nappy
    rash; oral thrush; scabies; sprains and strains; teething; threadworms; vaginal thrush; hay fever ; and bites
