Pharmacies commissioned to provide a minor ailments service give advice and support to people on the management of minor ailments, including where necessary, the supply of medicines (free of charge to those exempt from prescription charges) for the treatment of the minor ailment, for those people who would have otherwise gone to their GP for a prescription.
