Painkillers Facts - Paracetamol and Ibuprofen

 

When paracetamol and Ibuprofen is required in small amounts or for short periods, it is better for the NHS if people buy paracetamol and ibuprofen without a prescription

 

For this reason, North Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group - your local NHS organisation responsible for planning and buying health care - has agreed that GP's will stop prescribing paracetamol and ibuprofen in smaller quantities for short-term use.

 

You can help with this by buying these painkillers from a shop, pharmacy or petrol station.  All paracetamol and ibuprofen products are available as less expensive generic or in-store brands.  When provided on prescription, they cost the NHS significantly more.

 

If you are a patient who needs these drugs in regular large quantities - don't worry - you will continue to get them on repeat prescription.
