The NHS has issued guidance that recommends GPs do not routinely prescribe medication for certain self-limiting conditions or those that lend themselves to self-care where medications can be purchased easily at low cost.  Over the coming months the practice will be reviewing it’s prescribing in these areas.  A self-care guide for minor illness can be found here.  We would appreciate your support in this.
