Your local pharmacist is a highly trained healthcare professional, and can give you advice on common illnesses and the medicines you need to treat them. Most now have a quiet area away from other customers where you can speak to the pharmacist more privately.

Some pharmacies in Salford are open on bank holidays to help you stay well. Click here to find out which pharmacies are open near you over Easter 2019 and the August 2019 bank holidays. 

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.

Who can use the Minor Ailment Scheme?

The service is available to all Salford residents who are registered with a GP who have a minor, self-treatable condition.
