All children can sign up for minor ailments therefore you can get this free on perscription. Ask at your local chemist if you dont pay for perscriptions.

You beat me to it...

A lot of chemists don't do it (yet). But I know that Boots do it.

You need to go to the medicines (not prescription) counter and ask for some calpol as part of the minorailments scheme and fill out a form. You need to know who your doctor is, and they ask where you were told about this ie Did the Doctor/Emergency Doctor/NHS direct etc tell you to go and get some calpol on the minor ailments scheme. That's it. Dead easy and free. There are other things available also. You can get calprofen also.

reading about this "minor ailments" scheme on the internet seems to suggest you can only get this free if you are exempt from paying for prescriptions anyway. for those of us who do pay for prescriptions the standard prescription fee would apply - making it much more expensive than £1......

unless I've misinterpreted? :?

Yup. 'Cos your son or daughter is under 16 years of age it's always free.

There can be loads of reasons for this. i.e. there aren't any chemists near to you, but there is an Asda...........you're buying it for someone else and so you don't qualify for any freebies........you don't like asking for benefits........you want to stock up & buy a few bottles......etc....

To answer your questions horsepills

Most chemists do it or are signing up to it

Medicine for under 16's is free always

You don't need to be on benefits, it's not a benefit either, and getting free medicine for your baby/toddler is a right of all parents/guardians and you should not feel "ashamed" (or whatever) to get your kid better/well for free

You can stock up for free

my doctor has always told me to get some calpol in(buy it) when my son is ill.my doctor has never gave me a prescription for it.some doctors do some don't.it's like trying to get blood out of a stone at my surgery.I saw this calpol Monday morning and went back Monday night to get some and the shelf was empty.I will keep trying

but surely if an Asda is within walking distance, it is more cost effective to pay a £1 for a bottle there than travel further to a chemist in the hope of getting it free?

just making the point that there may be circumstances where this is a hot deal for £1, even if some places do it for free

Asda give it away for FREE. You don't have to pay. That's probably why they've reduced it to £1 so folk think they are getting a good deal.

thanks andywedge for the info, i never heared off the minor ailment and my GP never mentioned it,
it still hot deal and they are doing the sachets for the same price which is good for journeys..
they also have many other deals on medicines like antihestamines (heyfever tabs) for 50p, and ive seen blood glucose monitor for £4, i know diabetic patients can get one free but this one is better quality and is the minimum device in taking blood..
it worth a visit...

Thanks. Sadly, most people don't know about it, but it can save us parents a fortune in Calpol etc. The sachets is an excellent deal though (for days out/holidays etc).

Just posted a link so folk can learn a bit more about the scheme.

asda dont get it for free, to sell it for £1, they can claim the ones given for free but the ones sold they buy them and this is the best price (where sold)

They cliam the money back from the Govnt I presume on the ones that they give away for free under the scheme. I would guess they get a £1 for the ones they give away under the scheme.

I am so glad this has been posted and also for all the comments (even the thicker ones!) MCFC getsa rep - you're a star!

I have wasted tonnes of cash 'buying' this medicine, but reflecting some of the above comments - Doctor was too tight or closed or too busy (like for 10 days!) so ended up time and time again spending £2.79 for my kids. I have had it free occasionally, but it seemed so hard - and now so easy!!

Surely another example of Rip Off Britain - and why the credit crunch has arrived. If >16 get free medicines, why should anyone have to pay for this? Ridiculous

ps - what other medicines are free? Calprofen, Nurofen, Medised, Actifed, Sudofed, Buttercup?

According to "NHS Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework Enhanced Service – Minor Ailment Service" Examples of ailments which have been commonly included within previously commissioned local schemes are:
Back ache, sprains and strains
Colds
Conjunctivitis
Constipation
Coughs
Diarrhoea
Earache
Haemorrhoids
Hayfever
Head lice
Headache and fever
Heartburn and indigestion
Insect bites and stings
Mild eczema and dermatitis
Minor fungal infections of the skin
Mouth ulcers
Nappy rash
Sore throat
Teething
Threadworm
Thrush

Teething?!??!?! I didn't know that one. I could've bought a small island with the money I've spent on that for the lad.

I do know that you can't get Medised on the scheme. Most Doctor's I've come across haven't even heard of it. But when the lad is really ill we always give him that as it helps him sleep through the night also.

Hi All

My name must give it away, but sure enough most PCT's or local NHS are doing or are in process of introducing a minor ailment scheme, local to me the scheme is called "Pharmacy First" .... ie visit the pharmacy first!!!. There is momentum for goverment to introduce the scheme nationally to ensure this service regardless of yourpostcode so that you all will be able to access the minor ailments free for all people exempt from prescription charges. The scheme is run to inprove access to medicines for patients and also to ensure patints access the right healthcare professional for their needs and allows for more GP appointments to be available for those that really need them.

In regard to medised, I have never come across this being made available on a minor ailment scheme.

to find out if the scheme is available where you live then see the NHS website and contact your local Primary Care Trust or Local NHS. [url]www.nhs.uk[/url]

Hope it helps

pudding you are absolutely right, even my gp never gave me any prescrition and i've to buy it from chemists. i saw this deal 2 hours ago and went to asda but found empty shelf with roll back price tag.;-)

Calpol and Calprofen are absolutely wonderful at managing high temperatures, and I've no idea how people coped before they were available.

I'd never heard of Minor Ailments Scheme, so this thread is enlightening in that respect. Great deal in an emergency.
