Over the Counter Medication
Last year St Lawrence Surgery spent over £161,000 on prescribing medicines that are available over the counter
As a surgery we are amongst the practices with the highest spend per patient in Sussex.
St Lawrence Surgery has now adopted NHS England advice to GPs and other clinicians not to give a prescription for the treatment of common conditions, as specified by the NHS.
- This guidance applies even if a patient is eligible to free prescriptions.
- If buying this medicine over the counter is going to be difficult for you, please contact the surgery to discuss with our Medicines Management Team on 01903 222 900
- If at any time you are concerned about your condition you should contact the local pharmacist or the surgery for more advice.
- This policy also has the support of the St Lawrence Surgery Patient Participation Group.
