WE WILL BE MOVING TO A NEW CLINICAL SYSTEM IN MAY 2019 - THIS WILL BENEFIT THE PRACTICE WITH A MORE UP TO DATE CLINICAL SYSTEM.  PLEASE KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR MORE INFORMATION. THANKS

**As of 02 April 2019 - our practice will be following the new guidance set out by NHS England regarding prescribing of medicines that you buy over the counter (from pharmacies or supermarkets etc.).  For further information, please click on our page in the Further Information Box on the right hand side of the screen. 

NHS England Guidance on Over the Counter Medicines

Prescribing of over the counter medicines is changing.

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.

Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
