Self Care

Change of prescribing Over the Counter (OTC) medicines

Some medicines, that are available to buy over the counter (OTC) from pharmacies and supermarkets, will no longer be prescribed by GP practices.

Click here to view the list of over the counter products available to buy for self care. 

These are medicines used to treat minor, short term health conditions, which you can:

  • easily treat yourself (self care) or
  • they will get better on their own (self-limiting)
