How Does Minor Ailment Prescribing Work?

At Hopwoods Pharmacy, our qualified pharmacists are authorised to prescribe medications for a range of minor ailments. When you visit our pharmacy with a minor health concern, our pharmacists will conduct a confidential consultation to assess your symptoms and medical history. Based on this assessment, they will recommend the most appropriate treatment option for your condition.

In many cases, our pharmacists can provide you with medication directly, eliminating the need for a separate visit to your GP. This streamlined process ensures that you receive timely care without unnecessary delays. If necessary, our pharmacists may also refer you to a GP or another healthcare provider for further evaluation or treatment.
