OTC Medicines

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.
