HAY FEVER PRESCRIBING

 

NHS England no longer supports the prescribing of hay fever medicines on the NHS.  Prescribing these readily available medications for hay fever costs the NHS millions every year, adding unnecessary strain to local GP services.

 

If you do require treatment, a wide range of medications including tablets, nose sprays and eye drops can be purchased from pharmacies and supermarkets without seeing a doctor.  Your local pharmacist can also offer advice on the best treatment for your symptoms.
