Over-the-counter (OTC) Medicines

NHS England have changed their prescribing guidelines and we are therefore no longer issuing prescriptions for most over-the-counter (OTC) medicines. You can continue to use the medication but will need to buy it from your pharmacy instead. Your local community pharmacist is able to offer healthcare advice on many minor ailments and the best treatments. Please see below for more details:
