Care at the chemist
Care at the Chemist is a minor ailment scheme, which means eligible patients can receive advice and treatment for a range of conditions direct from their pharmacist rather than going to their GP. If you don't pay for prescriptions, then any medication provided under the scheme will be free of charge.
Your local pharmacist is able to give advice on a range of conditions and if appropriate can supply a medicine from an agreed list to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment for your condition. Please be aware not all medicines are suitable for all age groups but your pharmacist will be able to advise as appropriate. The following conditions can currently be treated by the NHS Care at the Chemist scheme:
• Allergies • Athletes foot • Coughs, colds and sore throats • Cold sores • Constipation • Cystitis • Diarrhoea • Ear wax • Headache • Pain or temperature • Haemorrhoids • Head lice • Indigestion • Infant colic • Mouth ulcers • Minor eye infections • Minor skin reactions • Nappy rash • Nasal congestion • Oral Thrush • Teething • Threadworm • Thrush (genital) • Warts and verrucas
