Non-prescribing of Over the Counter Medicines - wef 1st November 2018
NHS England had advised Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group that they must encourage all member practices to reduce the money spent on prescribing OTC (Over the counter ) Medicines.
Many OTC medicines are surprisingly cheap - for example a month of cetirizine (hay fever tablets) can cost as little as £1.99. We feel that it is right to support this cost saving initiative in order that money saved can be used to fund more vital patient care.
In the first instance, we will no longer be prescribing the following medicines to patients aged 18 years old and over: cetirizine & loratadine tablets and sodium cromoglicate eye drops. You will need to buy these from a community chemist/pharmacy/supermarket or use a reputable on-line pharmacy in future.
Part of this initiative is cost saving and part of it is about empowering patients to manage their own self-limiting conditions/minor ailments, with the help of a community pharmacist if required. This can also help free up valuable GP appointments at the surgery.
NOTE: " Some patients may receive a phone call from the Stop Smoking Support Team to ask patients of their smoking status and whether they require help quitting. The Stop Smoking Support Team are working with Hilton House Surgery and their calls are genuine".
If you wish to register to order your repeat medication online or book appointments online an application form is available from the surgery.
