NHS Minor Ailments Service
The scheme is aimed at all types of minor ailments, from allergies to cold sores. Patients can use the NHS Minor Ailments Service if they are registered with a GP in Tower Hamlets, and do not pay for their prescriptions. Simply ask for a registration form at your GP Practice, then bring the form to the pharmacy to complete registration and commence using the service. Once registered, patients can visit the pharmacy, explain their symptoms a member of staff and obtain medicines to treat those symptoms, without having to visit their GP.
