Common Ailments Service

 

Community pharmacies already advise on a wide range of minor ailments and either recommend treatment or refer on to another healthcare professional. The Choose Pharmacy Common Ailments Service builds upon this expertise allowing community pharmacists to offer some treatments, if they are considered necessary, free of charge to eligible patients on the health service.

 

There is no cost to the practice for this service.   By implementing a common ailment service within community pharmacy, patient accessibility to health care services will be improved hence encouraging the use of pharmacy as a first point of call for a health consultation and reducing the demands that such patients can make on their GPs and other NHS service providers.
