The Minor Ailment Scheme
The Minor Ailment Scheme has been introduced across pharmacies in Salford so that residents registered with a Salford GP can visit their community pharmacist instead of their GP for advice and if necessary a supply of medication to manage a number of self-treatable health conditions.
Community pharmacists are not only able to treat simple conditions but if you don’t currently pay for prescriptions they can issue a supply of medicines that you would normally need to buy, such as head lice treatments.
The service is available to all Salford residents who are registered with a GP who have a minor, self-treatable condition.
Most community pharmacists in Salford have signed up to the scheme and a full list is available here. Some of which are open in the evenings and at weekends.
The pharmacist can provide treatment and advice for the following conditions:
- Sore Throat
- Nasal Congestion (Infants)
- Verruca / Warts
- High Temperature
- Headache / Earache
- Contact dermatitis
- Head Lice
- Insect Bites & Stings
- Dry Skin
- Nappy Rash
