Self Care

The Pharmacy First Minor Ailments Service is primarily designed as a “walk in” service so that patients exempt from prescription charges of all ages can access self-care advice for the treatment of minor ailments and, where appropriate, be supplied with over the counter medicines, without the requirement to attend their GP practice for an appointment and prescription.

The rules of access are as follows:

·         The scheme is available to patients exempt from prescription charges who are registered with a participating General Practice in Dudley, Sandwell & West Birmingham and Wolverhampton CCG areas.

·         Visits are limited to six times in a twelve-month period.

·         The scheme is only for the treatment of a current common ailment and not to restock medicines.

·         The patient will need to attend the pharmacy personally.

·         The patient will need to bring their NHS number with them for the scheme to operate.
