Do you know about the NHS Care at the Chemist Scheme?
The local NHS operates a minor ailments scheme that is accessible at your local Chemist/Pharmacy right on the high street.
Under the scheme, you can see your local pharmacist for a private consultation, usually without an appointment, for a wide range of minor ailments.
If you don’t pay for prescriptions, then any medication the Pharmacist prescribes is free of charge.
The scheme is only available for patients aged one year and over.
For details of what conditions can currently be treated by the NHS Care at the Chemist Scheme please see the Care at the Chemist leaflets
