Pharmacy First - The Common Ailments Scheme

As at the end of 2017, many pharmacies in West Kent are taking part in the Common Ailments Scheme which helps people who don’t usually have to pay for NHS prescriptions access medicines for common minor ailments, free of charge. Simply walk in to a pharmacy and ask for advice; you do not need to make an appointment.

To find a participating pharmacy search ‘Health Help Now Pharmacy First’ online or ask us which local pharmacies are offering this service. Pharmacy staff will be able to make a diagnosis and offer you advice and treatment. The pharmacist may decide that you need to see a doctor and refer you to your GP, without giving you any medicine.
