Minor Health Conditions Service


This winter, Unichem Manly Pharmacy (and some other selected pharmacies) has been chosen by Te Whatu Ora to provide a free Minor Health Conditions Service to our Coastie community.


Minor health conditions are those that can be managed with advice, self-care and in some cases, medicines provided by our pharmacists. Proper management of minor health conditions can prevent more serious conditions from developing or prevent further costly treatment.

What does the free service include? Our pharmacists can give you trusted advice to manage your condition. If recommended, they can provide free treatment options including medicine. If your condition needs further support, they can help you navigate the health system by recommending the best place for you to go for your condition.


Who is eligible? Those eligible for the service are children aged under 14 years, community service card holders and all Māori and Pacific people The service runs over winter, from now until Saturday 30 September.


The following minor health conditions are included in this service:

• Acute diarrhoea

• Scabies

• Head lice

• Pain and fever

The Minor Health Conditions community pharmacy service has been offered to patients to help relieve pressure on other parts of the health system that will be particularly stretched over winter.
