NHS Minor Ailment Service
Everyone can go to their pharmacist for advice or to buy a medicine for a minor illness or ailment. However there is a new NHS service for people, including children, if your pharmacist thinks you need it. They can give you a medicine on the NHS without you having to pay for it.
