Prescribing of Over The Counter (OTC) Medication is changing

Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group is recommending that medications available over the counter are not usually prescribed by GPs. The recommendation is that “your NHS GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns. Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community.”
