From 1 October 2018 the NHS has changed guidelines for issuing prescriptions for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns.
Your 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.
The team of health professionals at your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns and if your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they’ll ensure you get the care you need.
You can read full details of this change on the Leeds CCG website.
Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
