Newry Health Village is supporting the Health and Social Care Board campaign,
‘Go ahead treat yourself’
Self-management of minor conditions will give GPs more time to treat more serious conditions
From 1st May 2017 we will be promoting patients to self-treat the following minor conditions:
Condition/ OTC Indication
Examples of medicines available for purchase
Aches and pains (mild) e.g. headache, occasional migraine
Anti-inflammatory gels e.g. ibuprofen
Oral pain killers e.g. Paracetamol, Ibuprofen liquid & tablets
Coughs, colds & sore throats
Hayfever and allergies
Oral antihistamines e.g. cetirizine, loratadine, chlorphenamine
Advice and/or treatment for these conditions are available from your pharmacy. Your pharmacist is available to discuss these conditions further.
Please also be aware of the Minor Ailments Scheme, which is available from your local pharmacy free of charge to treat a range of conditions.
