NHS England has published in March 2018 new prescribing guidance which covers 35 minor, short term health conditions which are either self limiting or suitable for self care

A 'Self limiting' condition does not require any medical advice or treatment as it will usually clear up on its own such as sore throats, coughs, colds and viruses

A 'Minor illness that is suitable for self care' can be treated with items that can be purchased over the counter from a pharmacy. These conditions include, for example, indigestion, mouth ulcers and warts and verrucae.

The new guidance from NHS England recommends that GPs no longer prescribe medicines that are readily available over the counter at pharmacies. Vitamins, minerals and probiotics are also included.

Patients who receive free prescriptions will not automatically be exempt from this guidance.

Please see the document below for the list of minor illnesses or items for which prescribing is restricted

Please note that the clinicians at Conway Road Medical Practice will be following this new guidance and we hope that you will understand the reasons why it is important that the NHS do not issue prescriptions for items that can be bought over the counter
