Working With Our Community Pharmacists
Your local pharmacy can now directly prescribe medicine to patients who have a minor ailment and do not pay NHS prescription charges.
It saves you time making an appointment with your GP to get a prescription and you have a choice of pharmacies you can visit for advice and treatment. Please click here for more information on the Minor Ailment Scheme (PDF, 340KB) and the types of problems your pharmacist can help you with.
Here is a list of participating pharmacies. Please see reception to collect your passport which you will need to access this service.
