SHEFFIELD NOROVIRUS WARNING
Please see the following link on how to stop Norovirus from spreading this winter - Norovirus Information
It is especially important that we follow these guidelines to ensure that this spreads as little as possible. We would ask that if you already have symptoms of diarrhea and vomiting or suspect that you are suffering from Norovirus that you avoid coming into the surgery wherever possible.

WHY YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT PRESCRIBE YOUR USUAL MEDICINES
NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for buying health services on behalf of people in Sheffield, including medicines provided on prescription.
We need to make sure we get the best value for NHS resources and that patients get the most effective care and treatment.
In Sheffield, we currently spend over £3 million a year on medicines that are widely available to buy over-the-counter without a prescription and a further £300,000 on expensive branded medicines where a non-branded product would have been available at a much lower cost.
Please see the following leaflet and poster for more information.
