Labelling of Over the Counter (OTC) medicines Posted on 13 Feb 2019

At the guidance of Rotherham Clinical Commissioning Group, GP Practices will no longer be prescribing some medications.

Some medicines that are available to buy over the counter (OTC) from pharmacies and supermarkets, will no longer be prescribed by GP practices. 

Click here to view the list of over the counter products available to buy for self care. 

These are medicines used to treat minor, short term health conditions, which you can:

  • easily treat yourself (self care) or

  • they will get better on their own (self - limiting)

If you require medication labelling i.e. if you child needs to take it to scholl or an elderly relative has it given by a care service, then the following Pharmacies will label the medication with instructions.  (The pharmacy will only label medications they have sold)
