Islington Minor Ailments Scheme
Dermacia pharmacy runs a free minor ailment scheme that deals with specific common health problems such as aches and pains, skin conditions and stomach upsets and saves you from having to go to the GP.
The pharmacist will be able to assess your needs, give you advice, suggest medicines if appropriate, and refer you to a GP if necessary. When pharmacies provide medicines as part of a minor ailment scheme, you get the medicines on the NHS.
If you normally pay a prescription charge, this charge will apply here. If you're exempt from prescription charges – if you're under 16 or over 60, for example, or if you have a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) – you won't pay for the medicine. If you have any questions, just call Dermacia pharmacy or pop in to our London pharmacy.
