Did you know you can actually get calpol free from any participating pharmacy for FREE through the minor ailments scheme.

not everywhere does/knows about that. I remember seeing a mention of it on facebook about it, a bit of googling, and it seems to depend if your local council/Boots etc sign up to it.

we use shops own ibuprofen/paracetamol for the kids, seems to work just as well and is much cheaper, not voted either way as I know some ppl will only use brand name meds.

this is down to individual areas only .. We can't get free in Kirklees but Calderdale can.

Ask at your local pharmacy. Called 'care of the chemist'. There is a list of things you can get from ibuprofen to teething gel and antihistamine syrup for the little ones.

You can only get it free if your child has a minor ailment. In the meantime it's good practice to have some in. HOT!

if you need free calpol then you shouldn't be having kids that you can't afford...

Normally I'd agree if it was a more frivolous product ie Pregnacare or vitamins. However I think it's fair enough to get free pain killers for children.
It should be noted that you don't get calpol, you get the cheaper ibuprofen/paracetamol equivalents that do exactly the same thing.
If you want to buy some in for emergencies, don't pay calpol prices.
We get Zero benefits, except child allowance. Claiming the odd non-means tested £1 here or there seems fair enough. We also have free medical insurance through our work so if we need anything serious for the adults we won't be a big drain on the NHS. Min Scotland this is called minor ailments. If a pharmacy can save a doctors appointment that resulted in prescribing rest and pain killers it's a huge saving to the NHS anyway.

​yes but you can grab them in pound shops or asda so why should you get then for free. Again If you have kids then make sure you can afford to look after them

I have struggled without money. we don't receive any benefits and I know that I would never ask for it nor would I ask for anything that you could easily grab on poundshop. by the way not having a dig at you just makes me mad sometimes
