Find Out More About 'Over The Counter' Medication Prescriptions and The True Cost to NHS

Prescribing of 'Over the Counter' Medications is Changing

Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for 'over the counter' medicines for a range of minor health concerns.

Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket.

Your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage your minor health concerns. If your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they’ll ensure you get the care you need.

Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
