Everyone can go to their pharmacist for advice or to buy a medicine for a minor illness or ailment.
But this is a new NHS service for people, including children, who don't pay prescription charges. It means that if your pharmacist thinks you need it then they can give you a medicine on the NHS without you having to pay for it. It will also save you making an appointment with your GP simply to get a prescription.
WHO IS THE SERVICE FOR?
You can use the NHS Minor Ailment Service if:
you are registered with a GP surgery in Scotland, and
you don't pay for your prescriptions, and
you don't live in a nursing or residential care home.
i AM SURE IT IS IN ENGLAND TOO,
SO THINGS LIKE SUDOCREM PARACETAMOL , ETC ARE ALL FREE
