Advice and treatment for minor ailments

Think PharmacyDid you know that you can obtain treatment for many minor ailments directly from a pharmacist without having to see a doctor?

If you are exempt from paying prescription charges (this includes pregnant women) then you won't have to pay for these medications either.  If you normally pay for your prescriptions, you will either pay the relevant prescription charge or the over the counter price, whichever is the cheapest.

To qualify, you need to be registered with a GP from a CCG participating in the scheme (Salford, Stockport and North, Central and South Manchester) and visit any pharmacy within the Greater Manchester area that provides the scheme (See list below).

The conditions covered by the scheme are in the main, minor and self-limiting.  Treatment is intended to cover the period of time you may be affected by the condition.  Pharmacists will use their professional discretion to decide whether medication is required and which product to supply.

 

The scheme covers treatment for the following conditions:

  • Acne
  • Allergy/rash
  • Athletes' foot
  • Cold sores
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Constipation
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Diarrhoea
  • Dry skin
  • Ear wax
  • Eczema
  • Haemorrhoids
  • Hay fever
  • Head lice
  • Headache/earache
  • Indigestion/heartburn
  • Insect bites & stings
  • Migraine
  • Nappy rash
  • Nasal congestion (infant)
  • Oral thrush
  • Scabies
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Sore throat
  • Temperature
  • Threadworm
  • Vaginal thrush
  • Verruca/wart
