Changes to prescribing at this surgery

Market Overton and Somerby Surgeries as a provider of Primary Healthcare commissioned through the East Leicestershire and Rutland Clinical Commissioning Group have been asked to share the attached document with you. It explains some of the measures being taken to reduce prescribing costs and identifies that in several areas, it is cheaper to purchase medication over the counter, rather than have it prescribed.

There are exemptions for some people but we would urge all our patients to visit the CCG website for further details or, ask for a copy of the relevant leaflet from the Practice/Surgery. Please do not be offended by these changes, we simply wanted to make you aware that over-the-counter prescribing is available to you.
