Minor ailment scheme
The minor ailment scheme is designed to enable people with minor health conditions to access medicines and advice they would otherwise visit their doctor for.
It allows patients to see a qualified health professional at a convenient and accessible location within their community, and means patients do not need to wait for a GP appointment or queue up for a valuable A&E slot with a non-urgent condition - See our 'Minor ailments Scheme' section for more details.
- Beat the queues and book appointments 24/7.
- No need to call the surgery.
- Book at your own convenience in the comfort of your own home.

Local Doctors practices have reported incidents of patients receiving unsolicited calls requesting their bank details in order to purchase vitamins. The caller claims that they work for the NHS before stating that the patient requires vitamins that are to be paid for over the phone, resulting in charges of hundreds of pounds. Durham Constabulary advise that anyone who has been contacted in this way contact their bank as soon as possible to attempt to block the payment, and should report it to Action Fraud (the UK's national fraud and cyber-crime reporting centre) on 0300 123 2040. To reduce the number of cold calls, register with the telephone preference service on 0345 070 0707 or www.tpsonline.org.uk
