Prescribing Over the Counter Drugs

The CCG is working with GPs, community pharmacists and patients to support the implementation of NHS England guidance to free up an estimated £100 million for frontline care each year by curbing prescriptions for certain ‘over the counter’ medicines.

Stopping routine prescribing for minor, short-term conditions, many of which will cure themselves or cause no long term effect on health, will free up NHS funds for frontline care.
