Buy common medicines without a prescription
For short term conditions, Over the counter medicines will no longer be prescribed August 2018
The local CCG has decided that we can no longer prescribe some common medicines which you buy at your local pharmacy /shop / supermarket without a prescription. This is quicker for you and frees up NHS resources for people with serious health problems. Some of these medicines cost just a few pence.
Examples of what can be purchased without a prescription are:
- Allergy medicines
- Simple pain killers like paracetamol and ibuprofen
- Sore throat, coughs, colds and flu medications
- Anti-diarrhoea medication
- Rehydration salts
- First aid kit including plasters and bandages
