Minor Ailments Scheme
The minor ailments scheme (targeted at patients that are exempt from paying prescription charges) is designed to enable people with minor health conditions to access over the counter medication for a number of conditions (see attached) and advice they would otherwise visit their doctor for.
It allows patients to see a qualified health professional at a convenient and accessible location within their community, and means patients do not need to wait for a GP appointment or queue up for a valuable A&E slot with an non-urgent condition. This service is available free of charge.
