Community Pharmacies

The medicine that I recommend for you today is available to buy without a prescription at community pharmacies.

This also means that if you require this medicine again you don’t need to make a doctor’s appointment but can go straight to the community pharmacist to get it, saving both you and the doctor time.

The NHS in Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, and Westminster spent over £13 million last year on products that can be bought without a prescription at community pharmacies.

The NHS is under pressure. Our budgets are not large enough to pay for all the treatments we would like to purchase. We would like to spend less on medicines you can buy without a prescription so as to free up funds for other valuable NHS services.

When you buy this medicine at the pharmacy, please ask for the least expensive appropriate form of the medicine.
