Schools & Nurseries may need to review their medication policy in light of recent information. Doctors are being advised by their government advisory body not to write prescriptions for OTC meds.

MHRA licenses all medicines and classifies them as OTC when it considers it safe and appropriate that they may be used without a prescription.

It is appropriate therefore for OTC medicines to be given, or authorised, by parents when they consider it necessary. This may be in a home or nursery or school environment.

LMC’s who advise GP’s would therefore consider it a misuse of GP time to provide an appointment for a child with the sole purpose of acquiring a prescription for an OTC medicine, to satisfy the ruling of a nursery or school.
