Did you know that your local NHS spends £15m a year on prescribing medicines that are

available to buy at the pharmacy? Following national guidance from NHS England, we’re asking GPs not to prescribe these medicines*, including for conditions such as coughs, colds, headaches, mouth ulcers, travel sickness and mild toothache.

For Your Information:

Please note that we do not prescribe medication for patients who suffer anxiety when flying. Even if you have been given medication previously this is not something we now provide.

Please refer to your flight carrier website who provide advice for patients who are nervous or who have a fear of flying
