Self Care Guidance

After talking to patients about over the counter medicines for minor conditions and understanding their experiences , the local Clinical Commissioning Group is asking GPs  to no longer prescribe medicines on prescription for the short term treatment of minor ailments, low dose vitamin D supplements for prevention of deficiency and some specialised infant formulas. Patients will be asked to purchase them over the counter instead at the local pharmacy. 

Community Pharmacists are best placed to help and advise people about suitable treatment for minor conditions.  They are a great source of information, advice and guidance and you can buy your medicines cheaply and easily for minor conditions.  The pharmacist will check the medicine is appropriate for you and your health problem. They will ask questions to ensure there is no reason why you should not use the medicine.

However if you are worried or your symptoms get worse or persist you can still make an appointment to see your GP. 

By visiting your pharmacy you will help to free up valuable GP and nurse time, which can be used to deal with more complex or serious health needs.
