Services Database Minor Ailments Scheme (Bristol Area)
The aims of this service are to:
- improve access and choice for people with specific minor ailments by promoting self care through the pharmacy, including provision of advice and OTC medicines where appropriate at NHS expense without the need to visit the GP practice; and
- improve primary care capacity by transferring workload in relation to specific minor ailments consultations from general practice to community pharmacy.
This service is an open access scheme for all patients presenting for treatment at those pharmacies commissioned to provide the service by Bristol CCG as long as those patients are:
- exempt from NHS prescription charges; and
- registered with a General Practice that is a member of Bristol CCG.
Please note, this service has been decommissioned.
