As we move through Spring into Summer, more and more people will feel the effects of hay fever.
But did you know that most hay fever remedies are available over the counter at your local Pharmacists?
Every year, unnecessary prescriptions cost the NHS millions of pounds, and add extra work for GPs and other NHS staff.
That’s why we will no longer routinely prescribe medication for mild and moderate hay fever that can be bought over the counter.
There are many medications for common ailments that can be bought directly, rather than being prescribed.
If you take care of the little things, the NHS can keep taking care of you.
