Cold from me, free from your local chemist after registering your kids for Direct Care (Scotland only ?)
HOT from me, Calpol is expensive and can't get it for free in England!
you can get it free on presciption!
or prescription even!]
I for one would not want to wait a few days for a doctors appointment to get some 'free' calpol. I would rather nip in tesco and pay a pound!

I've only been offered it free if my children have been ill etc and I've had to take them to the NHS drop-in centre or they have been to hospital. How do you get it free on prescription - do you have to make an appointment to see your doctor to ask for it (seeing how busy my doctors always seems to be, I would think that they would not make me an appointment just to get some Calpol!)?
Loads do not get this free, many drs send you to chemist, they do round here(somerset).
Could somebody change my Go to deal to the correct link please? It won't let me do it ... Its giving me a headache now ... Good job i have stocked up on Calpol lol! Thank you

Thinking about it, if my doctor did see me, I think he would just tell me that I can buy it at any chemist. I think that I'm going to have a trip to Tescos to get a couple of bottles. Does anybody know if this offer is available in Tesco Metro/Express or just at Tesco Extra? Thank you.
Most doctors never give "Calpol" on prescription - if they give paracetamol, its a random generic brand that doesn't taste the same (even though technically it will do exactly the same job but try telling that to the kids!!!).
Makes a nice mixer with Gin, and it gets rid of your hangover at the same time
Great deal and as others have said I will not waste my doctors time to get some free calpol for a minor illness that my children don't really need to see a doctor about in the first place.

Just out of interest does anyone know if there's a limit on how many bottles of calpol you can buy in one go? I know Tesco will only let me buy two packs of 16 paracetamol tablets at a time so wonder if they have a similar rule about children's medication?

Voted hot! I love this stuff can't get enough of it.
if your on certain benefits you can register with your parmacy for something, cant remember what its called. you get a card and there is a big list of things you can get for free just over the counter, no need to bother the dr. children can have them for free too. anything from paracetamol to hayfever stuff
Brill price.Thanks.

Its called minor ailments. You don't need to go your doctor, the pharmacist writes the prescription. I've had sudocrem, bonjela, e45, immodium, ibruprofen, dentinox and infacol.

Technically there's no legal limit for the liquid but I know the larger 200ml bottle can only be bought from the pharmacy counter so I would guess only two (160ml) instore.

Have to say I tried online and it let me add 10 bottles in my basket, whether they would actually allow it in the final delivery I dont know.

Anyone who normally gets their prescriptions free can get some over-the-counter meds on minor ailments schemes. So kids under 16, people over 60, people on income support and some other groups can all get the items for free. I think its a great idea, just not all pharmacies do it which is annoying as it would save a hell of a lot time rather than waiting at the GP.

I'm not on benefits and i get for myself and LO.
Bizarre! Personally I go to the doctors and get it free, repeat prescription. Always have one in and or nurofen. Then tick box and get repeat. Rocket science?

After registering your under 16 at your local chemist for Direct Care there is no need to go to doctors surgey and use up GP's valuable time, go to chemist - ask for medication - describe symptons to pharmacist (they shouldn't give it out without at least asking what the synptons
are) - collect medication.
As far as I'm aware Direct Care at your chemist is Scotland only, and you don't need to be on
benefits to register.


I got this on repeat prescription, took a few visits to the doctors then on about the 3rd visit I said it was daft me keep having to come in to get this, so he gave me a repeat

also if you are strong willed walked into chemist and say you want capol, 2 chemists have been a pain, but boots did it, I just said he wont take anything unless it is capol, they just take it off the shelf for you

you should never accept that, remember you are quite within your rights to have it on the NHS

no you don't need appointment just request(repeat prescription) that way youy've always got some in!
We get free prescriptions in Wales, but have never been offered Calpol on prescription from our local GP surgery, last visit with a sick child was this week, cost me almost £10 from the chemist for a small bottle of this and a bottle of nurofen! Should I be getting this free then?

yes you should, it seems one of those things that people think they should buy, make an appointment with you doctors ask for a large bottle 500ml or get it on repeat, if you get it before they are sick, it avoids the "I need it now issue"

check by scanning, tesco are rubbish for labels
So many people getting free handouts of Calpol here. No wonder we are in so much debt. In my day we'd swish salt water in our mouths and brave it out. I guess this is just a reflection of the spoon in mouth generation.
So let me get this right, a Dr studies for 7 years at medical school, trains for another 3-5 years as a GP just to be able to write repeat scripts for paracetamol suspension because some, or the majority of people on this forum exploit the NHS.
Even if you are on benefits I still find it difficult to believe that you cannot afford this basic medication
great price as should have at home at all times if you got kid(s)
Cold, im not 6 until september
Once again a simple post of a bargain
grows into a World War Three Event!
Great price and I love Calpol's flavour. Just as well it's the sugar free version - a warning to you all the full-sugar version is Orange flavour!
