Guidance on conditions for which over the counter items should not routinely be prescribed in primary care
NHS England carried out a public consultation on reducing prescribing of over-the-counter medicines for minor, short-term health concerns from December 2017 to March 2018 resulting in guidance for healthcare professionals being published. Likewise, guidance regarding treatments eligible for NHS prescriptions continues to be updated and can be found on NHS England’s webpage.
NHS England request GPs not to give NHS prescriptions (even to those eligible for ‘free’ prescriptions) for many conditions in the following categories:
- Conditions which are considered to be self-limitingand so does not need treatment as it will heal of its own accord;
- Conditions which lends itself to self-care, i.e. that the person suffering does not normally need to seek medical care but may decide to seek help with symptom relief from a local pharmacy and use an over the counter medicine.
- Vitamins/minerals and probiotics
Conditions (and treatments) affecting patients seen by optometrists include:
Dry Eyes / sore tired eyes
Mild to moderate hayfever
Lutein and Antioxidants
Omega-3 Fatty Acid Compounds
Please familiarize yourself with the following resources in order for you to advise your patients appropriately regarding self-care rather than routinely directing them back to their GP for an NHS prescription.
- Healthcare professional reference guide regarding OTC medication prescribing
- NHS England letter to GPs
- Patient information leaflet regarding NHS policy regarding purchasing OTC treatments
- June 2019 update regarding treatments no longer eligable for NHS pescriptions

Hospital Eye Service Contact Details
QA Hospital Portsmouth – Eye Casualty
Tel: 02392 286162
For Ophthalmic Contractors wishing to refer patients for Low Vision to local providers:
QA Hospital Portsmouth
Currently optometrists use the GOS 18, a letter or a practice template for referring to Hospital Eye Services. To encourage feedback from consultants it is vital that the name of the referring optometrists and contact details are clear.
Secondary care referrals (with the exception of urgents) must go via the patients GP as they have access to the eRS advice and guidance function, which is something we are encouraging within our system to help manage referral demand.
In terms of the agreed pathway for referral to eye casualty – this is via telephone for an urgent appointment. The phone number is 02392 286162.
GPs have been notified by the CCG that they will be responsible for forwarding non-urgent referrals to QAH as per the following message:
“Direct Optometrist referrals to secondary care providers
Following a number of queries relating to the local referral pathway, the CCGs would like to confirm that local Optometrists are not able to refer directly to secondary care providers – the referral must go back to the GP for validation and onward referral.
Optometrists can however refer directly to the Care UK Community Service where the referral meets agreed clinical guidelines.
The CCGs continue to look at opportunities around streamlining this process going forward and will keep you updated. In the meantime, if you receive a request from an Optometrist to refer your patient onto secondary care (GOS18), please could you ensure this is done and not sent back to the Optometrist.”
Glaucoma and Cataract patients should be referred to St Mary’s NHS Treatment Centre.
St Mary’s NHS Treatment Centre
Please use the following link for Referral Guidance in respect of St Mary’s Ophthalmology Service together with the Referral Form. Please can all Optometrists state, on the referral letter for cataract, if the patient has had a laser refractive treatment in the past.
