Over the Counter Medicines

Our GPs and nurses will not generally give you a prescription for medicines available over the counter at your local pharmacy or supermarket for a range of short-term, minor health concerns.  These include medicines for concerns such as:

  • Coughs, colds and nasal congestion or acute sore throat
  • Conjunctivitis or dry eyes/sore tired eyes
  • Diarrhoea (adults) or infrequent constipation
  • Dandruff
  • Haemorrhoids
  • Head lice
  • Indigestion or heartburn
  • Insect bites or stings
  • Mild dry skin or mild irritant dermatitis
  • Nappy rash, infant colic or cradle cap
  • Mouth ulcers or oral thrush
  • Mild to moderate hayfever
  • Earwax
  • Infrequent cold sores
  • Ringworm or athletes foot
  • Sunburn or sun protection

The team of qualified healthcare professionals at your local pharmacy can offer clinical advice to safely and effectively manage these conditions.

These changes are in order to help the NHS use resources sensibly – this surgery alone spent £509,821 last year on self care treatments, this money can be spent better elsewhere.  Please help us by seeking advice from your pharmacist.

Update Your Details

Patient Liaison Group

Friends & Family Test

  • We would like you to think about your recent experiences of our service.

Asthma Review

  • Please give us your full name
  • e.g. 45 Cherry Tree Road
  • (including cough)
  • (cough, wheeze, chest tightness or breathlessness)
  • (housework, work, school etc)
  • If you have answered YES to any of the above questions, it is very important that you make an appointment to have a face-to-face review with a practice nurse. We may need to change your medication. If you have answered NO to all three questions, we will complete your asthma review for the year, however in certain circumstances we may contact you by phone to discuss your medication and whether it should be changed or stopped. Please note the details you have provided will be used to update your records, and should your symptoms worsen at any time you should contact us.

    I understand if I consent to share all of my health information - this includes my current health conditions, my current medications, any allergies I may have, any recorded information regarding my family relationships (i.e. my next of kin) and information about my decisions regarding my preferred place of care.
  • Please provide your mobile number. Providing this will be seen as receipt of your consent to record this number on your medical records, and for its use for your direct medical care only (i.e. text message reminders for appointments etc)
