Across Warrington, GP's and other health professionals will no longer routinely prescribe medications for short term minor health problems. NHS Warrington CCG undertook a formal public consultation on these proposals which received overwhelming support. On average, 87% of people agreed that, unless there are exceptional circumstances, patients will be expected to buy the medicines listed below themselves over-the-counter at a local pharmacy or supermarket.
- Pain Killers (for minor aches, pains and other ailments)
- Tonics, health supplements and vitamins
- Earwax remover
- Lozenges, throat sprays, mouthwashes, gargles and toothpastes
- Indigestion remedies for occasional use
- Creams for bruising, tattoos and scars
- Hair removal creams
- Moisturisers and bath additives for dry skin
- Sun cream (unless diagnosed photo sensitivity as a result of genetic disorders)
- Food and food supplements (except on the advice of a dietician)
Why? NHS Warrington CCG spends approximately £1 million per year on prescribing these medicines. This money could be better spent on treating more serious conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Many of these products are readily available, along with advice, from local pharmacies. Some are also available from local shops and supermarkets.

New Services for Patients:
All of our patients have a named GP who has overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them. Your named GP will work with you and other health care professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that your care package meets your individual needs. This does not prevent patients from seeing any GP in the practice.
Online Record Access
Our patients have been able to use the internet to book appointments with a GP and request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly for some time. Patients can also view their medical record online, including coded information on medication, allergies, illnesses, immunisations and test results
Being able to see your record online might help you to manage your medical conditions. It also means that you can even access it from anywhere in the world should you require medical treatment on holiday. If you decide not to join or wish to withdraw, this is your choice and practice staff will continue to treat you in the same way as before. This decision will not affect the quality of your care.
You will be given login details, so you will need to think of a password which is unique to you. This will ensure that only you are able to access your record – unless you choose to share your details with a family member or carer.
Improving Accessibility to this Website
We would like to help our patients who may have difficulties accessing the information and services available on our website. If you have a visual disability, hearing problems, language or reading difficulties, mobility etc. the BBC have produced a useful guide to improving accessibility to website content, which offers guidance and advice.
Patient Participation Group
We welcome registered patients who wish to join our Patient Group, the commitment you make may be simply attending some of our group meetings or perhaps you'd like to be even more involved, either way we're happy to have you on board. If you prefer to join our 'Virtual Patient Group', please select the tab on the right for more details.
