Being served in a pharmacy

Pharmacies also provide a wide range of services including the Minor Ailment Service and Chronic Medication Service.

The Minor Ailment Service: enables eligible individuals, including children, to be registered with and use a local pharmacy as their first port of call for advice and free treatment for common conditions. You don’t have to make an appointment and can go along at a time that suits you. To qualify for this service you must be registered with a GP practice in Scotland and not as a temporary resident or a resident in a care home.

The Chronic Medication Service: enables eligible individuals to register with a local pharmacy for help in managing the medicines they have been prescribed for long-term conditions. To qualify you must be registered with a GP practice in Scotland and get regular prescriptions.

A long-term condition is likely to last for more than a year, for example, diabetes or high blood pressure.

You can find out more about the Minor Ailment Service and Chronic Medication Service at your local pharmacy.
