Minor Ailments Scheme
It has been recognised that the community pharmacist can offer support for patients and the health service by managing the Minor Ailments Scheme.
The areas of therapy currently covered under this scheme are as follows:
* Cold Sores
* Removal of ear wax
* Mouth Ulcers and Inflammation
* Oral Thrush
* Head Lice
* Athlete's Foot
* Vaginal Thrush
* Dhobie Itch
If you are currently suffering from any of the above conditions, please simply call with your local pharmacist who can give advice and provide the appropriate treatment immediately.
You do not need to contact your own GP as a prescription is not required for these medications.
Minor Injuries Unit (MIU)
If you have an illness that is not life threatening, contact your GP Surgery first if possible. You can still call your GP outside normal surgery hours, but you will usually be directed to an out-of-hours service. The out-of-hours period is 6.30pm to 8am on weekdays, and all day at weekends and bank holidays.
If your injury is not serious, you can get help from a Minor Injuries Unit (MIU), rather than going to an A&E Department. This will allow A & E staff to concentrate on people with serious, life-threatening conditions and will save you a potentially long wait.
Important points to note:
MINOR INJURIES UNIT MAGHERAFELT
Cannot see anyone under 5
Cannot see anyone under 15 with Head Injury

If there is a query if a patient can be seen please contact the MIU Magherafelt on
