Do you really need a prescription for over the counter medicines like paracetamol and ibuprofen? When required for short term minor illnesses, it is better for the health service if you buy these medicines without a prescription.

Talk to your local pharmacist if you need some advice for minor ailments. You don't need an appointment!
