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.
