From 1 October 2018, we have been informed that Berkshire West GP practices are no longer routinely prescribing a range of over the counter (OTC) medicines and vitamins associated with minor ailments and short term conditions. This was confirmed at the Berkshire West CCG GP Medicines Optimisation Committee on 26 September 2018. More information can be found on the CCG website
