Prescribing of  Hay Fever Medication

The Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) in Worcestershire, who are responsible for healthcare investment, consulted with the public to identify areas to prioritise for continued investment.  Following further public engagement last year, the CCGs have determined that they no longer support prescribing of some “Over the Counter Medicines” on the NHS. This includes hay fever preparations.

Therefore patients will need to purchase hay fever preparations from the ranges readily available in local supermarkets, other stores, online or pharmacies.

This is one of a number of prescribing changes that are being introduced by the CCGs. Further information about these changes can be found on the CCG website: www.worcestershire.nhs.uk/prescribing/  or you can pick up a leaflet from your surgery.

A leaflet is available which gives you more information about how to manage your hay fever and what preparations are available to buy. Patient information leaflet 

If you have any concerns about this, please contact the Clinical Commissioning Groups rather than us:-
