Over the counter Medicines (March 2017)
The local Clinical Commissioning Group has asked local surgeries to ask patients if they might be prepared to buy over the counter medicines such as simple painkillers or items easily and cheaply bought at the pharmacy rather than having them on a prescription. Your GP may ask you about this at a consultation if the GP feels that this might work for you.
Ruth Cutler is the practice manager and works 4 morning a week, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mornings.
