Local Minor Ailment Scheme

Local Minor Ailment Scheme

Did you know that you can treat up to 18 different minor ailments without the need for a doctor's appointment?

 In conjunction with local pharmacies the surgery can issue you a passport which enables you to receive common medications over the counter or with a prescription without having to see a doctor first.

You pay only the cost of the medicine or the dispensing fee - whichever is cheaper. Patients who are eligible for free prescriptions don't pay anything at all.

For more information about the pharmacies participating in the scheme or how to claim your passport please view the Minor Ailments Leaflet.

Minor Ailments Include*:
 Athletes Foot                      Head Lice 
 Conjunctivitis High Temperature or Fever
 Constipation Indigestion or Heartburn
 Coughs Mouth Ulcers
 Cystitis Nasal Congestion
 Dermatitis Sore Throat
 Diarrhoea Threadworms
 Ear wax Thrush
 Hay Fever Warts & Verruca

* some treatment may be restricted due to patient's age and you must be registered with the surgery to be eligible for a passport.
