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.
