Guidance from the Department of Health NI and the HSCB advises GPs not to prescribe medicines that can be purchased over-the-counter.
This GP practice will no longer prescribe medicines that can be purchased over-the-counter by patients when they are being used to treat minor conditions or self-limiting illnesses where their is no evidence base for their use. The practice promotes self-care and patients should be advised that their local community pharmacist can provide advice and help to manage minor conditions and self-limiting illnesses.
