South Devon and Torbay CCG Self-Care Initiative
South Devon and Torbay CCG have recently published new self-care medicines leaflets. There are two available, one for GPs to recommend an OTC item that a patient can purchase in a pharmacy rather than being prescribed. The leaflet will be completed by the GP and given to the patient to hand to the pharmacy for advice if necessary. The second leaflet promotes the self-care initiative and provides a brief explanation of what it means.
CCG colleagues will be visit pharmacies in the CCG area to explain the self-care initiative and to leave a small number of leaflets with you. (November 2016)
