Your local pharmacist is a highly trained healthcare professional, and can give you advice on common illnesses and the medicines you need to treat them. Most now have a quiet area away from other customers where you can speak to the pharmacist more privately.

The Minor Ailment Scheme
The Minor Ailment Scheme has been introduced across pharmacies in Salford so that residents registered with a Salford GP can visit their community pharmacist instead of their GP for advice and if necessary a supply of medication to manage a number of self-treatable health conditions.
Community pharmacists are not only able to treat simple conditions but if you don’t currently pay for prescriptions they can issue a supply of medicines that you would normally need to buy, such as head lice treatments.
Who can use the Minor Ailment Scheme?
The service is available to all Salford residents who are registered with a GP who have a minor, self-treatable condition.
Which pharmacies in Salford are offering this service?
Most community pharmacists in Salford have signed up to the scheme and a full list is available here. Some of which are open in the evenings and at weekends.
What conditions does the scheme cover?
The pharmacist can provide treatment and advice for the following conditions:
- Sore Throat
- Nasal Congestion (Infants)
- Verruca / Warts
- High Temperature
- Headache / Earache
- Contact dermatitis
