Guidance on prescribing of over the counter medicines in primary care

NHS England has published guidance on conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care.

NHS England is asking CCGs to take the guidance into account in formulating local policies as well as in prescribing practice. The guidance is accompanied by a report which outlines the findings of a public consultation on these measures.
