If you've got a home bargains near you, they sell generic ibuprofen and paracetamol for children for £1 a bottle.
for those of you who are not aware, there is a minor ailments scheme in this country, take your child to any pharmacy and ask for the minor ailments form, which entitles your child to various things for free, paracetamol, ibuprofen, sudocreme, bazuka, saline nasal drops, to name a few, only condition is that your child is with you, but its not just for children, if your entitled to certain benefits you can use it to, the list of stuff available has canesten on it, which can be expensive to buy.

This wouldn't be a knockoff like some of the other stuff they're selling. They're not much better than fleaBay.
Good price
Problem with Amazon is their most items has very short shelf life/expiry date. This is good for someone who is totally ran out of the medicine for a child and want to use straight away. If you thinking to use in 3-6 months time then it might be wasted.
1.93 for me thanks!!

some of the products that you get are generic but not all and you have to wait for it like a prescription, think you're limited to 2/3 items at one time but not 100% sure on that but otherwise I think you can use the service as much as you need, designed to take the pressure of the surgery's so give it a go.

They don't give you what you want, it's only the basics which is no use even if it's free

Just to say known about this for about 3 years and every few months whenever something is wrong with my kids we ask our 2 local pharmacies and due to living in a supposed wealthy area it is not available to us. So this is by no means Nationwide.
It's the first time I've heard of this scheme. Sent my husband to the Tesco pharmacy because the little one's got a barking cough and he was told they didn't know about it. We've also called a Lloyds pharmacy and even though they knew if it, they were not participating in it. I love how NHS claim it's not a secretive scheme but hardly anyone knows about it and finding a chemist that actually does it.... the saying ''looking for a needle in a haystack'' comes to mind... Anyway, ordered 2 bottles of this Nurofen, hope the use-by-dates are not too short. Cheers!
Currently unavailable now.
Just to clarify, this scheme is only available in certain areas where the local CCG provides the funding for it. Most areas no longer provide the service due to the lack of NHS funding.

And also bear in mind that if you do find a pharmacy that provides the Minor Ailments Service, then whatever is supplied is at the discretion of the pharmacist and based on the diagnosis of the issue. You don't just fill in the form and get what you like! See this link for more info: nhs.uk/new…ll/

Please see my post above. No one is being secretive really, it's just that the scheme has been stopped by most CCGs in England for years. So if one pharmacy in your area no longer provides it, it's likely almost all the others won't either
