Pharmacy First Common Ailments Service to Cease

In March 2018 NHS England (NHSE) issued guidance about minor ailments for which Over the Counter Medication is available for patients, carers and parents to buy from local pharmacies or supermarkets. At present local pharmacies provide certain Over the Counter Medication free of charge to patients who are exempt from Prescription charges.
However, in line with the NHSE guidance, Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has issued notification that this service will cease with effect from 01 September 2018, and so patients, carers and parents will be asked to purchase these medications after this date.
Examples of conditions for which this will apply include:

·         Allergies

 

·         Indigestion

·         Sore throat

 

·         Athlete’s foot

 

·         Teething

·         Threadworm

·         Cold sores

 

·         Mouth ulcers
