NHS Minor Ailment Scheme

Care at the chemist

Care at the chemist is open to anyone over the age of 1 year who is registered with a GP. Under the scheme you can see your local Pharmacist for a private consultation for a wide range of ailments.

If you don’t pay for your prescriptions any medication the Pharmacist supplies will be free of charge. By using this service, you will be helping to free up valuable time for the GP to¬†deal with more complicated and serious cases.

The scheme is open to anyone who is registered with a GP in Halton.

If you are suffering from a minor ailment just call into your local pharmacy and ask about the scheme, and if you need more privacy you can request a private consultation, usually without an appointment.
