Minor Ailments service

Published date: July 2006

Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) Minor Ailment service.

The Minor Ailment Service (MAS) aims to enable patients who are exempt from NHS prescription charges to receive treatment for minor illnesses free of charge from a community pharmacy in Scotland. The service will provide patients with faster access to healthcare and will help primary care achieve its 48 hour access commitment by reducing the number of GP appointments for minor ailments and conditions.
