Minor Ailments Scheme

Sometimes our reception staff will suggest on the telephone/ or face to face to visit the pharmacist to get treatment. This saves you from making an appointment to see the doctor. Should you feel you need to see the doctor anyway, the reception staff will be happy to make the appointment.

Patient can see their Pharmacists for the following conditions(listed below). The Pharmacists will do an assessment and prescribe/ advise accordingly. It may be that they decide on few occasions that an appointment will be needed with your doctor. The Pharmacy will request/ suggest an appointment with the GP the same day.

What can they treat?

The following are

•  Athlete's foot
•  Cold
•  Constipation

What I do next?
