  • Children under 16 (or under 19 if in full-time education);

  • People aged over 60 years of age;

  • Those on certain benefits (eg Income Support);

  • People with a valid medical exemption certificate.

When you are registered for the minor ailments service your pharmacist can give you medicine for a minor illness or complaint, if they think you need it. You will not have to pay for this.

You will be able to get advice and free treatment (if you need it) from your pharmacist for problems such as:

Acne, Athletes Foot, Backache, Cold Sores, Cough, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Earache, Eczema, Allergies, Haemorrhoids (Piles), Hay Fever, Headache, Head Lice, Indigestion, Mouth Ulcers, Pain, Nasal Congestion, Period Pain, Thrush, Sore Throat, Warts, Threadworms, Verrucae.

Your pharmacist, like your doctor, can only give out certain medicines and products. You may not get the medicine or product you would normally buy.

If your pharmacist feels it is better for you to see your GP, they may refer you directly or ask you to make an appointment at your surgery.

Register at any pharmacy.

Nuisance Calls

It has come to our attention that some patients in Tayside have recently received telephone calls from an unknown source querying the medication they are currently prescribed.  The patients are informed that if they do not share this information with the caller, their medication will cease.

Please be assured that NHS Tayside will never ask you for such information and your medication will not be stopped.

If you have any suspicions around a phone call you have received please contact us directly so we can notify NHS Tayside, as they may be able to establish a pattern, and we would also suggest that you report this to the Police.

Thank you.

Collections

Do you have any used postage stamps at home?  We are collecting stamps to raise money for donkey sanctuaries.  Please hand them into Reception or pop into the box in the waiting area. Thank you kindly.

May we remind our patients that GP appointments are 10 minutes long. If you have more than one problem or would like a longer discussion then please let us know when making your appointment.

Knowing what is likely to happen during each stage will help you plan and prepare for your baby's arrival – something you may feel both excited and nervous about at the same time. 

First days together

In the first few days after the birth, you and your new baby are getting to know each other. There’s a huge amount to learn – find out more about the best way to feed your baby, what practical steps you will need to take, and how you may be feeling.  

Growing together

Being a parent is exciting – but at times you may feel anxious. Here you can learn about what to expect from your growing baby, as well as information on immunisations, postnatal depression and weaning.
