Hay Fever Update
Posted on 10 Feb 2020
Prescribing readily available medication like antihistamines, nasal sprays and certain eye drops for hay fever costs the NHS millions every year, adding unnecessary strain on local GPs and the NHS.
Processing these prescriptions can cost 20 times the price of buying identical medication at your local pharmacy or supermarket.
Before you contact your surgery, talk to your pharmacist. You don't need an appointment and for most mnor illnesses it's faster and easier.
