Mid Essex Policy on: 'Medicines that are available for purchase over the counter'

Burnham Surgery supports the principles of the Mid Essex Policy on medicines that are available over the counter. An increasing range of medicines are available for purchase. It is particularly the case for patients with a self-limiting illness that they are expected to purchase such medicines after seeking appropriate advice from a community pharmacist or other healthcare professional. Please see the Mid Essex Policy.  CCG Medicines Guidelines
