Not a lot of people know this, but you can actually get Calpol for free for your children.
One mother needed some for her child and went to Boots where she said it was a bit pricey.

But the cashier told her she could get it for free under the ‘minor ailments scheme’.
They can’t advertise about the scheme so she posted details about it on Facebook and that was shared more than 100,000 times.
The scheme was started to low income families and take some of the pressure off GPs.

A spokesman for NHS England said: ‘These minor ailments schemes were established to provide NHS funded, over the counter medicines to people on lower incomes.
‘The scheme prevents the need for patients to have medicines for minor illnesses prescribed by a GP – leaving the GP more time for patients with more complicated conditions.’
