NHSE & NHC CC OTC QRG

NHS England & NHS Clinical Commissioners have published a quick reference guide (QRG) to Conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care.

The OTC QRG sets out the reasons for recommending that certain treatments of limited clinical effectiveness, or used for conditions that are either self-limiting or suitable for self-care, should not be routinely prescribed in primary care – with references and suggested exclusions.
