Reducing prescribing of over-the-counter medicines
NHS Bradford district and Craven CCGs have agreed to adopt NHS England’s guidance on reducing prescribing of over the counter medicines.
This means that if you have a minor condition that can be easily treated with medicines that are available to buy, your GP may ask you to buy the medicine rather than issue a prescription.
There are 35 minor, short-term health conditions, for further information click here.

If SystmOnline is refusing to allow you any more prescriptions, it may be because:
- you are ordering early, or
- because your doctor needs to re-approve your medication.
Please ring Reception on 01274 504 956 and let them know which medications you require. A message will then be passed to one of our doctors to deal with your request

By post – You can send your repeat prescription slip in by post. If you do not have your original slip then please note down your name, date of birth, medication and dosage required.
If you supply a stamped, addressed envelope we will post your prescription back to you. We do not accept prescription requests on the telephone for safety reasons.
Please allow 48 hours before collecting repeat prescriptions. Sometimes, you may be asked to make an appointment to see the doctor before your next appointment. This is to check the progress of your medical condition and treatment.
