NHS guidance has now changed and no longer supports prescribing of over the counter treatments 

Dated: 23-Apr-19

NHS guidance has now changed and no longer supports prescribing of over the counter treatments for minor/self-limiting conditions.

You can visit your local pharmacy to obtain treatments for minor health conditions and immediate clinical advice. If you have something more serious, the pharmacist is trained to signpost you to the right medical care.

Whilst we can appreciate this will not have an immediate effect on unnecessary appointments, by using these resources we aim to encourage patients to learn about self-care and think twice before making an appointment.
