Over-the-counter medicines

Over-the-counter medicines on prescription survey

Last summer, NHS Greater Huddersfield CCG and NHS North Kirklees CCG ran a campaign across Kirklees in relation to ‘over-the-counter’ medicines. The aim of the campaign was to encourage people to buy their own medicines for minor, short term ailments, rather than getting them on prescription.

The campaign looked at the true cost of providing small quantities of some common medicines on prescription, with some items costing up to four times more when prescribed, compared to the price in local pharmacies, shops and supermarkets.

The CCGs in Kirklees would now like to know if you knew about the campaign, and what you thought of it. We’d really appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to complete the survey here and have your say before Monday 8 May 2017.

Your views are very important to us and your feedback will help us to develop future campaigns designed to raise awareness of health issues and delivering best value.
