You don’t need to see your GP to stock up your medicine cabinet

Following NHS guidance, GP surgeries in this area are asked to not routinely prescribe over-the-counter medication.

Looking after yourself when you’re feeling under the weather with a minor illness is easy if you already have a well-stocked medicine cabinet.

You can get advice and purchase medicines at little cost from community pharmacies rather than getting a prescription. Some medicines are also available from supermarkets and other shops.

Why not set up your own home medicine cabinet so that you have things on hand when you need them.

Remember to always keep to the dosage intructions and make sure all medicines are in date – for more information see www.bnssgccg.nhs.uk/pharmacyfirst
