Minor Ailment Scheme

The minor ailment scheme is designed to enable people with minor health conditions to access medicines 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 a non-urgent condition.

If the patient being treated is exempt from paying prescription charges – because they’re under 16 or over 60, for example, or they have a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) – you don’t have to pay for the medicine.
