Over the Counter Prescribing

Rushall Medical Centre have recently adapted the guidelines produced by Walsall CCG which aims to restrict the prescribing of medication for short term use that can be bought at a reasonable cost over the counter. If this guideline is followed it will result in:

  • Reduced patient reliance on prescribers for prescriptions.
  • Reduced consultations for minor, self-limiting conditions.
  • Increased patient self-reliance for minor conditions.

The NHS has been spending around £136 million a year on prescriptions for medicines that can be bought from a pharmacy or supermarket, such as paracetamol. By reducing the amount the NHS spends on over the counter medicines, we can give priority to treatments for people with more serious conditions, such as cancer, diabetes and mental health problems.
