Conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care

26th April 2018

Following consultation, NHS England has produced guidance for CCGs on conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care.

It applies to all patients including those who would be exempt from paying prescription charges, unless they fall under the general or condition specific exceptions outlined.
