Prescribing of Over the Counter Medications

Prescribing of over the counter medicines is changing

Your GP, nurse or pharmacist cannot give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of short-term, minor health concerns.

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

The team of qualified healthcare professionals at your local pharmacy can offer clinical advice to safely and effectively manage minor health concerns.  Click here, or on the Image below for full list of short-term, minor health concerns.
