The RCGP estimates that there are over 50 million consultations each year in General Practice for minor ailments.  This could be as many 56,000 consultations.  It is estimated that 90% of these consultations result in a prescription and that 80% of these medications are available over the counter without a prescription.  They also report that 70% of minor ailments do not actually require medical action or intervention.

The CCG has tasked us to encourage patients to self-care and purchase over the counter medicines in accordance with CCG policies.
