Do you really need paracetamol on prescription?

Last year County Durham GP practices spent £1.78m supplying paracetamol on prescription.

Did you know a box of 32 paracetamol on prescription costs the NHS approximately three times as much as it does to buy the tablets from a pharmacy or supermarket?

Please read this poster about how the cost of paracetamol could be better used within the NHS. Please help us reduce waste by only ordering what you need on prescription and not sharing your medication - it is prescribed only for you.
