Recent changes

Wirral CCG have had to make certain changes recently to save money and direct funds into other areas. This letter from the CCG explains some of the changes and why they have taken place. This includes GPs no longer prescribing medications available over the counter and a reduction in gluten free prescribing. Please click the link to view this letter: Changes to prescribing

Changes to prescribing

Wirral CCG have changed their prescribing policy for certain over the counter medications which we will no longer be able to prescribe under NHS prescription. These include medication to postpone periods, head lice treatments, short term pain killers such as paracetamol or ibuprofen and hay fever remedies for adults. For a full list of excluded medications click here

Gluten Free Products

As of 4th December 2018, the prescribing of gluten-free foods on the NHS in England will be restricted to bread and mixes only. The Department of Health and Social Care have placed restrictions on gluten-free prescribing. This means that products such as biscuits, cakes, cereals, cooking aids, grains/flours and pasta will no longer be available for prescribing in primary care.

NHS Minor Ailments Scheme

Under the Minor Ailments Scheme also known as ‘Think Pharmacy’ you can receive treatment from your pharmacist for minor ailments which you do not need a GP appointment for at participating pharmacies. The pharmacist can issue certain treatments under prescription and if you do not pay for your prescriptions, you will receive this treatment free of charge. If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP, your pharmacist will recognise this and direct you to see your GP instead.

Dental Problems

We are unable to treat dental problems. You should instead book an appointment with you dentist. If you are not registered with a dentist, the number for emergency dental care is 0161 476 9651. Antibiotics will not help with dental pain and your GP will not prescribe them for this reason. You can get over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen from your pharmacist while awaiting dental treatment.

Menses Delay Medication

Under new prescribing guidelines, we are unable to give medication to delay periods for travel or sport under prescription. We can also no longer provide a private prescription for this. If you would like to postpone your period, you can visit a pharmacy website such as Boots, Lloyds Pharmacy or Superdrug, have an online counselling session with a pharmacist and order the medication privately from them.

Antibiotics

We are unable to prescribe antibiotics for viral infections such as coughs and colds. They will not be effective and may make you more resistant to antibiotics in the future. For more information about antibiotic use please see below:

University Students

Please note: students who are living out of the area must register with a doctor at their university or university town. Students should make sure they order enough medication to last over the holidays from their own GP before coming home. We are only able to see students in the holidays as an emergency and not for issuing repeat prescriptions.
