Medicines you can buy without a Prescription - Over the Counter Medicines (OTC)

Following a public consultation across Hertfordshire we are no longer able to routinely write prescriptions for medicines that you can buy yourself; it is estimated that this costs £6 million a year just for Hertfordshire. These items include antifungal creams for athletes foot and thrush, antihistamines and other hay fever remedies (such as nasal sprays and eye drops), treatment for head lice, Indigestion remedies such as Gaviscon, Cold sore treatments, painkillers including Paracetamol, Ibuprofen and Co-Codamol.   For more information, there are leaflets at the surgery plus information on our website. Some of you may already have received a leaflet with your repeat medications if they include one or more of these items.

Jack May Trust Fund

The Jack May Trust Fund was initially founded to facilitate the use of donations to the Health Centre to provide items specifically of benefit to patients and for which funding might not otherwise be available; and has subsequently become a registered charity (thus enabling the benefit of Gift Aid donations), funded by various sources of income such as donations and the proceeds of fund raising events. 

 

The Trustees are Colin Brookbanks, Peter Brighton, Peter Appleton, Tom Hamilton and Kay Kerr 

 

Proposals for the use of the Trust's income are considered at meetings of the Trustees with Health Centre staff, with authorisation of expenditure on approved projects being the specific responsibility of the Trustees and implementation being the responsibility of pertinent staff. 

 

Expenditure to date has covered such diverse items as: 

 

improvements to the treatment room and to furniture in the waiting room

provision of medical equipment additional to the standard scale, where this was    considered to be worthwhile, e.g nebulisers for emergency use by patients

support for services where the NHS lead time is excessive or NHS funding is no longer available, e.g. counselling

the funding of this website

automatic entrance doors to the Health Centre

Donations to the Fund are always welcome (by cash or cheque made payable to Jack May Trust Fund)  and further information on the Fund can be obtained from Reception, the Practice Manager or any of the Trustees.
