Be Self-Care Aware
Practices across North West London no longer routinely prescribe medicines which are available to buy over the counter in pharmacies, supermarkets or other shops. If the medicine you need today can be bought without a prescription, we may ask if you are willing to buy it.
Your local NHS spent £13 million last year on medicines and products that can easily be bought in community pharmacies, supermarkets or other high street shops. By buying some of these medicines and products rather
than getting them on prescription you are helping your NHS save money.
So if the medicine you need can be bought without a prescription, we may ask if you are willing to buy it. Your local community pharmacist can advise on medicines that are available to buy.
