Patients can purchase medications after seeking appropriate advice from a community pharmacist or other healthcare professionals. Mid Essex CCG is keen to support patients in managing their own self-limiting conditions and minor ailments, which do not need to be treated by a doctor or minor illness nurse. Not taking up an appointment for the supply of an over-the-counter medicine will increase availability of appointments for patients with more serious conditions.
