Allergies

We would advise that it is usual for all antihistamines to be purchased 'over the counter' directly from a pharmacist (in line with CCG prescribing guidelines).

We recommend that all patients become familiar (or refresh their knowledge) with using adrenaline 'auto injectors' (eg. epipen, jext) by watching the videos below.

Patients prescribed auto-injectors are invited in annually for review.
