BC Minor Ailments & Contraception Information & Appointments

Minor Ailments and Contraception Service (MACS)

*effective June 1, 2023*

Pharmacists in BC can now prescribe for more than 21 different conditions and contraception (birth control).

A pharmacist may only make a diagnosis or prescribe for one of these conditions if the patient’s symptoms indicate that the condition:

  • Presents a low risk of masking an underlying disease, disorder or condition

  • Can be readily diagnosed without the need for laboratory or imaging tests

  • Can be reasonably expected to resolve with only short-term or episodic treatment.

Do you qualify for the service?

To determine if you are eligible for this service and to learn more about each ailment, you may wish to complete the provincial government self-assessment survey.

Appointments

Please note that a combination of walk-in and scheduled appointments may be available. Ailment and contraception prescribing service selection will vary by location and by the specific pharmacists on duty. Thank you for your patience as we develop these new skills.
