Over the Counter Medication
A GP will not generally give you a prescription for an over-the-counter medication for a range of minor health conditions.
Government policy is in place to reduce the amount of money the NHS spends on prescriptions for minor conditions that usually get better in their own.

In 2020 the law around organ donation was changed in England and the government introduced an 'opt-out' system.
This means that everyone in England over the age of 18 will be considered to be in favour of dontaing their organs unless they have opted-out, have appointed a representative to decide for them after death, or are in one of the following exluded groups - under the age of 18, ordinarily resident in England for less than 12 months before their death, or they lack mental capacity for a significant period before their death.
The family of the decaesed will always be consulted first and they will still be able to provide information on their loved one's wishes.

Sepsis arises when the body’s response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. It may lead to shock, multi-organ failure, and death – especially if not recognized early and treated promptly. Sepsis is the final common pathway to death from most infectious diseases worldwide, including viruses such as SARS-CoV-2.
World Sepsis Day is September 13 - Further information on this can be found by visiting www.worldsepsisday.org
