Prescribing Changes (July 2017)

Changes are being introduced to what we will be able to prescribe. See our guide to the changes from the local prescribing guidelines – What your GP can prescribe on the NHS:

So that we can protect funding for the most essential NHS services for local people – things like emergency and cancer care – maternity and mental health services, your local NHS has stopped funding and prescribing some medicines and procedures.

Your GP can no longer give you an NHS prescription for:

  • Gluten-free products – e.g. bread
  • Hayfever medications (unless requiring continuous treatment for more than 3 months, or over-the-counter treatment not effective)
  • Medicines for dental conditions – e.g. mouthwashes, toothpastes
  • Head lice and/or scabies medication
  • Muscle rub creams such as Deep Heat and Tiger balm
  • Omega 3 and other fish oil supplements
  • Multivitamin supplements
  • Eye vitamin supplements
  • Colic remedies for babies
  • Cough and cold remedies
  • Paracetamol and ibuprofen (except in solution for children if appropriate)
  • Soya-based formula milk

Travel vaccinations 
- Your GP can no longer provide these travel jabs on the NHS: Hepatitis A and B combined, hepatitis B, meningococcal meningitis, Japanese encephalitis, rabies, tick-borne encephalitis, TB, yellow fever.
