All local pharmacies do a self care scheme. This means that if you do not normally pay for your prescriptions you can visit your local pharmacy for treatment of minor ailments.
The Chemist will talk to you and be able to give you over-the-counter medication if necessary for the following conditions:
ADULTS cough, colds, flu, earache, heartburn, indigestion, vaginal thrush and head lice.
CHILDREN cough, colds, flu, earache, diarrhoea, teething or colic and head lice.
However they cannot treat cystitis, hayfever or stomache problems under this scheme.
